Fund free school meals for all students year-round

Petition Details

It is now as important as ever to provide all children with one hot, balanced, and healthy meal a day. The Government must guarantee free school meals for all school students by expanding eligibility for meals and ensuring that they are provided to children throughout all school holidays.

Additional Information

1.3 million children live below the poverty line yet are not eligible for free school meals. We must support all children by making free school meals available for all, including during school holidays. This will guarantee school meals for all families who suffer from food insecurity. Access to healthy, hot meals will not only relieve stress for thousands of families, but has also been proven to improve children’s academic performance. Let’s feed the future.
