Project to feed youngsters during summer holidays is growing

A number of organisations in Stoke-on-Trent are working with community groups and schools to provide activities and free meals throughout the school holidays this summer.

It follows concerns that children in the county, who normally receive free school meals during term time, would go without enough food during the six-week break.

Organisations such as Synectics Solutions, the Hubb Foundation, the charitable part of Synectics, Opportunity area (Department for Education) and Tesco are taking part.

It is the fourth year now the scheme has been in operation with tens of thousands of free meals provided during the period.
