It is a shocking statement to make, but there are families in Flintshire who are in food poverty.  Food poverty is the inability to afford, or to have access to food that makes up a healthy diet.  Children are going hungry because their parents cannot afford to buy food.

Share your Lunch’s summer campaign will help us to ensure that as many children as possible return to school well fed, engaged and ready to learn.

Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, Councillor Dave Hughes, said:

“Share Your Lunch proved to be a big success last summer, making a real difference to hundreds of people in our community.  Children should not have to go hungry in this day and age.  We aim to provide around 800 meals per day to play schemes throughout Flintshire, please come along and enjoy the fun and spirit of adventure!”

Robbie Davison of Can Cook who will be providing the meals over the six weeks, is passionate about the project.  He said:

“Providing a fresh meal to children every day is essential to their health and wellbeing. We know that if children eat well, they play well and if they play well, they are happier. This year we will make sure every child who is part of the Share your Lunch programme receives a healthier, fresh meal - our aim is to provide meals that make children happy.”  

The Share Your Lunch Project will be delivered at 27 of our play scheme sites.  All forms and further details will be available on our website by mid-June.
