Increase the money children on free school meals receive to buy their meals

Petition Details

We want the Government to increase the £2.41 students on free school meals receive to buy their meals. Not everyone can afford to top these payments up, and too many children end up going hungry, which can impact their studies and behaviour.

Additional Information

In some schools £2.41 isn't even enough to buy a sandwich and a drink
