‘Can I save mine and take it home? I want to share it with my mum.’

The eight-year-old boy sat holding his fish and chip lunch, while the other children ate theirs. For this child like many others around the country, school holidays can be a time of increased hunger and stress as families struggle to make ends meet, and the weekly budget has to stretch to cover more meals.

This little boy had seen his mum go without food and wanted to share his lunch with her.    

Thankfully this child had the chance to be part of a holiday club, supported by Church Urban Fund. He was provided with healthy lunches, and your gift today will help support many church-based social action projects across England, which are helping to tackle the food crisis.  

At CUF we want to help those struggling to put food on the table. Would you help us with a gift today? Just click the donate button above, to get started. Thank you.
