BARNET Council please fund free school meals for children this October half term and beyond

In reaction to the recent Parliamentary vote to extend free school meals on 21 October, many councils (run by all political parties), local business and community organisations across the country have all backed the #ENDCHILDFOODPOVERTY campaign led by Marcus Rashford.

Barnet Council needs to back this campaign and commit to funding free school meals over the school holidays until at least April 2021.

Why is this important?

According to the end child poverty coalition, 27. 2% children live in poverty in Barnet. This equates to 6566 children after housing costs in 2018-2019.

We, the undersigned, urge Barnet council to take urgent action and join the councils across the country and provide free school meals for those Barnet children eligible over October half term and beyond.

Please sign below to support the campaign.
