Holiday Hunger is a real thing, so real, some independent MPs like Mr Frank Field have asked the government to extend school free meals to be made available during the holidays, especially long ones like the summer break.
The statistics are quite saddening. Over 300,000 children across West Midlands are living in poverty and skip meals due to lack of availability.
Holiday hunger pushes many families into food poverty and insecurity. Although some children from low-income families can access free school meals during term time, there is currently nothing available during holidays. Holiday hunger also means families can suffer from social isolation during the holidays, as they cannot afford to have family days out or do activities. (Foodcycle.org)
