Free school meals parcels are just not good enough.

The government promised to feed children on free school meals during the coronavirus crisis. But by replacing free school meals vouchers with ‘woefully inadequate’ food parcels, children up and down the country are going hungry.

By hiring private companies to put together these parcels, instead of giving parents vouchers - the Government has left parents worried about how they’ll feed their children.

Why is this important?

Already, celebrities, businesses, politicians and the British public have come together to send a clear message - our children deserve better. Now we need a huge petition to add to this pressure, signed by thousands of people like you and me, that would send a clear message to the government: free school meal vouchers cannot be replaced with food parcels.
