End Hunger has been actively campaigning to make a difference on holiday hunger over the summer break, including a meeting at City Hall in London and activists sending over 150 postcards to MPs asking them to tackle holiday hunger.
Next week there will be a chance to persuade the government to step up to the plate on the issue, with Frank Field MP presenting a bill on 5 September that would see funding for every local authority to end holiday hunger – along the lines of the Welsh Assembly Government’s Food and Fun project. The UK has the highest level of childhood food insecurity in the EU it is important we take steps to tackle food poverty.
If you can, please write to your MP and ask them to support Frank Field’s bill as it goes through the House of Commons. Click here to use our simple e-action.
If you have already contacted your MP on holiday hunger, please feel free to forward this email to a friend. You can find out which MPs have already agreed to support the bill on feeding Britain’s website.
