Devon leads £2 million bid to end holiday hunger

A major operation is under way in Devon to combat holiday hunger for children this Christmas.

We are leading the operation to organise networks of providers across the county, using a £2 million government grant to support vulnerable children and families in the most effective way.

Over the next few weeks a range of community kitchens, holiday clubs, charities and local businesses will be enlisted to coordinate help and support for those who need it the most in every district in Devon.

They will ensure that every child entitled to free school meals will be able to get free food over the Christmas holiday, during the Easter half-term and the Easter holidays.

You can read the full story on our News Centre.

More information about financial and food support for families and individuals in Devon is available on our website.
