Half-Term Free Meals for Hart Children

26/10/2020

Hart businesses and community organisations have met the Marcus Rashford challenge to prevent local children from going hungry this October half-term.  From packed lunches courtesy of Hawley Football Club to curries from the Spice Merchant in Crookham Village, local people have come together once again to demonstrate their support for our community.

A full list of all free meal offers can be viewed at this link –  Hart District – October Half Term Food Offers

Hampshire County Council has announced a funding package for food banks, charities and other organisations, to help vulnerable children and families – at a similar level to the Government’s previous free school meal voucher scheme.

Hart District Council is also supporting local residents in need through government-funded discretionary grants schemes.

If you are in contact with anyone who lives in Hart or Hampshire, who is struggling to make ends meet or is affected by the coronavirus pandemic, please do ask them to contact the Hampshire Coronavirus and Support Helpline  – 0330 370 4000.  A call to this helpline will direct people to welfare support and other types of assistance including volunteer help with shopping, prescription collections etc.

For details about eligibility for Free School Meals in Hampshire, please go to this link.

Let’s make sure no child in Hart who qualifies is missing out.
