We're calling on Harrogate Borough and North Yorkshire County Councils to extend free school meals, not just for the Autumn half term, but also Christmas so that no child living in poverty misses out - even during holidays and lockdown.
Every child should be able to have at least one balanced meal a day and no child should have to go to bed hungry.
If the Government won't ensure that our children won’t go hungry over school holidays, then we need our local council to do the right thing and step in to extend the school meal scheme.
Schools across Harrogate & Knaresborough have already seen considerable cuts, such as Harrogate High School which has seen an eye-watering loss of £700 per pupil. Many local schools just can't afford to cover this without extra support.
Local children are going hungry. We can't let them down.
