Children’s Holiday Hunger a ‘Major Social Evil’

RP Adam Help With Holiday Hunger

As reported by Sky News, a group of MPs have called for urgent Government action to alleviate the ‘horror of hunger’ during school holidays.

With an estimated three million children in the UK at risk of going hungry during school breaks, the MPs have called on the Government to make grants available to local councils to solve this ‘major social evil’.

The All Party Parliamentary Group on Hunger called for radical steps recommending that the Government allocates £41.5m towards the provision of free meals and fun for children during school holidays – one tenth of the Healthy Pupils Capital Programme funded by revenues from the sugary drinks levy.

As reported in a previous blog post, RP Adam continue to support initiatives in this area through our involvement in the Meals and More Scheme, a charitable programme spearheaded by the Brakes Group, one of our major customers – see RP Adam Help With Holiday Hunger.
