Free lunches for Kingston’s vulnerable children this half-term

We stand with Marcus Rashford MBE in his fight to ensure that no child goes hungry during the school holidays.

We are incredibly disappointed that neither the government nor Kingston Council are pledging to support children from poorer families across Kingston during the October Half Term. If they won’t look out for struggling families, we will.

No child should ever go hungry.

If your child is in receipt of Free School Meals, we will be offering a free lunch consisting of a sandwich, snack and drink, Tuesday-Friday next week during October Half Term between 2pm and 3pm.

On Tuesday, you will be able to collect a lunch from volunteers in New Malden. On Wednesday and Friday, our pick up point will be at The Circulatory, next to Berrylands Station. On Thursday we will be in Chessington and Hook.

Please email us (in confidence) to freeschoolmeal@kirg.org.uk or fill in the form below at least 24 hours in advance, specifying the days you wish to receive a lunch and outlining any dietary requirements of your child(ren), and we will reply with our collection address for the specified days.

We’re not yet clear on how great the take-up of this will be, so please do bear with us. We’re trying to do the best for our community.

Please don’t feel embarrassed to ask for help – it has been our pleasure to be able to support Kingston’s struggling families throughout the pandemic, and we continue to be here to help.
