No Child to go hungry this half-term


Spotted in Ely was pleased when asked to support Daybreaks and Cambridge Commodities to fulfil their mission that no child will go hungry in our region during the October half-term.

Throughout next week if you head down to Daybreaks and ask for a ‘child’s meal’ or a ‘young adult meal’ then you will be provided with lunch at no cost.

Both companies would love you to pop in to get your free lunches! Don’t forget to share with your friends; let’s end child food poverty together.

Since announcing the initiative, many other groups and organisations have contacted us to let us know they are doing things in the community to help children get food during this half-term. We have complied a list of them below. If you want your initiative adding below, email Please remember, we only know about these initiatives if you tell us about them.
