A community centre in Netherfield will be opening its doors to children and their families over the February half-term to stop them going hungry.
The initiative, named the ‘Half-Term Special’, will begin at St George’s Centre on Victoria Road from Monday, February 14 until Friday, February 22.
During the week, families with school children can eat a main meal for free between 2-4pm. The last meal will be served at 4pm. Puddings will cost 50p and drinks are not included.
The scheme is being backed by TSB.
Booking for the meal is essential.
Tina Simpson from the Netherfield Forum, who are helping organise the scheme, said: “We want to help those families who are in need of help throughout February half-term. This will be our year of helping feed families.”
