While free school meal vouchers are available to a proportion of children in the UK, this barely scratches the surface of true child hunger in the UK.
In other communities across the globe, free school meals do not exist. Through partnering with schools and educational organisations, our aim is to make sure every single child has access to at least one school meal, but that this also extends out into the community.
Parents and elders themselves choose to go hungry in a bid to make sure their children get enough food. Too often, this means many adults can go days without eating anything.
Food and Water for All
The truth is, there is enough food in the world to feed every individual person - the distribution and allocation of that food is what drives the fight against hunger. The global food supply chain is not fit for purpose, which is why working with organisations such as Charity Meals ensures you do your bit to reverse this trend and guarantee that those who are struggling have better access. Being given free school meal vouchers or visiting the nearest foodbank are mere sticking plasters in the battles against hunger and poverty.
We need your support in building a community kitchen or preparing community meals, which will help to power the fight yet further in combatting hunger locally and globally.
