We know how difficult times are for some families. It breaks our hearts that children, all over the country, may go hungry because of the Summer Holidays. We want to do our bit, no matter how small, so we have teamed up with Coffee at Lyde to offer a helping hand to families who normally benefit from free school meals in our local area.
In the Summer Holidays, we will be offering local children a free packed-lunch meal or a weekly food supply box from the Community Centre.
There is no stigma or judgment here. There will be an online voucher system to privately request meals for each day or a weekly/fortnightly food parcel.
If you would like to donate to support families in this way that would be fantastic! 100% of all donations received will go straight to free meals for children who would normally receive school meals. A packed lunch for one child costs £1.80.
We don't know how many families will come forward, but any donations not spent in the Summer Holidays will be put towards funding similar initiatives helping families in the school holidays.
From both the Coffee at Lyde Team and the Lyde Green Community Association, thank you.
