My story

[p]This week I’ve been a mixture of furious and despairingly sad over the news on school meal vouchers and have been trying to think of how I can help. Locally there are many great cafes offering lunches for these children who are missing out on vouchers and many new food bank collections points have popped up. We are stuck at home for the next few days so can’t support these cafes or donate food. So, I’m putting my hand in my pocket... maybe you can join me...[/p][p]In August we were all told to ‘eat out to help out’ and were given a healthy discount on our steaks and triple cooked chips.[/p][p]In October the government voted to not fund free school meal vouchers for children who most need it over the holidays.[/p][p]Whilst the ‘eat out to help out’ initiative helped many businesses survive the summer period, in reality I didn’t need a £10 per head discount. Therefore I’m going to pay back that discount into my local food bank.[/p][p]Irrespective of your politics on this, if you could have afforded to pay that extra £10, donating that to your local food bank will go to supporting the most in need families in your area. So I’ve setup this giving site to make it easy to do that.[/p]
