Kitchen Social

17 January 2017

Great to hear about Kitchen Social a new scheme supported by the Mayor's Fund aiming to tackle the problem of holiday hunger.

For children from a disadvantaged background, the school holidays can be a difficult time.

Over the next 3 years, the Kitchen Social programme will bring together community groups, boroughs, businesses, foundations, charities and individuals to ensure the city’s young people do not go hungry or feel alone over the school holidays. They are hoping to raise £1 million to create 330 holiday club groups in some of the poorest parts of the capital, provide free hot meals and support to families that need it most.
