Lunchbox Library was funded by a CUF-Together Grant and was run by St Michael & St Stephen’s Church, Southfields in partnership with Ronald Ross Primary School and Southmead Centre for Children and Families to help reduce financial pressure experienced by families during school holidays. It addressed summer holiday-related hunger and reading loss. 

The project offered free healthy lunch and the team read stories to children and advised parents/adult carers on how they can support children with reading. That was not all, there were fun games, outdoor play and craft activities to give children a positive experience of a summer holiday despite limited financial options. It was funded by a Together Grant from our partner, CUF.
