Summer Holiday Lunches

It’s that time of year again- summer. And so far it’s a scorcher here on the south coast - blazing sunshine, refreshing sea, electric World Cup and the tennis. 

On a less sunny note, however, it is also the time of year many parents dread – the 6-week school holidays. Not only are most parents challenged with keeping their kids occupied 24/7 but they also need to keep their bellies full. 

Food Portsmouth, together with Portsmouth FoodCycle and Foodbank will be tackling Holiday Hunger by providing one hot meal a week at each of Portsmouth’s six adventure playgrounds. That means if a child goes to every playground in a week, then together with the playground’s breakfast provision, each child will be fed throughout the day for six days a week. This in turn will alleviate some of the pressures faced by many parents this summer.
