Three million children face the risk of food insecurity this summer. We need our government to take the issue of holiday hunger seriously.
What should I do?
One MP is planning a bill that would commit the government to taking holiday hunger seriously. You can help by contacting your MP and local newspapers – especially if you run a project that responds to holiday hunger.
When should I do it?
Invite your MP to visit your project during the summer holidays, and see the problem for themselves. Then keep up the pressure in the autumn as the new bill is put forward in Parliament.
Why get involved?
Our vision is to live in a country where everyone has access to good food and no one goes to bed hungry. One key aim is to ensure that children have access to proper nutrition 365 days a year – not just on the 190 days a year when free school meals are available. Three million children are at risk of food insecurity this summer.
It’s time to step up to the plate
