Extend Free School Meals

980 of 1,000 signatures

Sheffield Liberal Democrats are calling for the Council to extend free school meals, not just for the October half term, but also Christmas so that no child living in poverty misses out - even during holidays and lockdown.

No child should go to bed hungry in our City.

If the Conservative Government won't ensure that our children won’t go hungry over Christmas then it's time for the Council to do the right thing and extend the local holiday free school meal scheme over Christmas.

As Marcus Rashford has shown with determination you can make a difference and feed children who will go hungry. Sheffield Council should now show the same determination and humanity and implement a local scheme for Christmas.

Sheffield City Council need to do the right and decent thing. Our city’s hungry children need you. Don’t let them down.
