free summer meals
You may be aware of the issue of children who receive free school meals going hungry during the long school holiday.
There is a new initiative working with SOFEA to provide a free meal to children, with parents able to buy a meal alongside the children. this will run every Monday, Wednesday and Friday in the long summer holiday, starting very soon, at venues like the Civic Hall and the Railway Centre. It would appear that schools have been given flyers about this. Timings are around the lunch time period.
They are looking for help with food prep, run crafty activities or sporty games; kitchen volunteers on Fridays, and general/activity volunteers for all Mondays/Wednesdays/Fridays. I'm sure they would welcome offers for single dates as well as for a series of dates during the summer.
We have a short induction session on Thursday 25th July at Didcot Civic Hall. There is a choice of times - either 10 -12noon or 6.30 - 8.30pm.
Please let Vicky or Jonathan know if you are able to help with this or would like to know more details.
