SCHOOL SUMMER LUNCH BOXES
Last year we trialled a new initiative to provide lunch boxes for children on free school meals who would otherwise go hungry during the summer holidays. Each lunch box contained sufficient food to provide five lunches. The initiative was so successful that we provided 211 lunch boxes - the equivalent of over 1,000 lunches to children at Letchworth schools during the summer holidays in 2018. This was a gigantic effort on the part of our volunteers at both the warehouse and the distribution centre and required us to purchase a lot of additional stock to supply the need.
This year we intend to extend the scheme to Baldock schools. Our volunteers are once again very much up to the task but unfortunately our stocks are running low. Click on the link below to see the items that we need for this initiative. Please help us if you can.
