If you are looking for ways to support those in need in your community during the Coronavirus outbreak then supporting families with children on free school meals is a great place to start. If schools close in the UK over the next weeks those children will be particularly vulnerable.
Within a square mile of Beth Myring’s church there are 700 children who receive free school meals. During the holidays some of these children became both malnourished and obese. Beth’s work has brought together the community, council and churches to provide holiday clubs which feed and nurture children and families struggling with holiday hunger.
For support with setting up holiday hunger initiatives in your area contact https://www.tlg.org.uk
