On Friday I chaired this month’s Feeding Leicester Steering Group. At this month’s meeting we looked back at the success of the Holiday Hunger project.
It was absolutely fantastic to hear that the project delivered over 32,000 meals to children across the city over the summer holidays – 10,000 more meals then were planned and many more than the 11,000 meals that were given out last year!!
I want to thank all the organisations, staff and volunteers who have made this possible.
Over the coming month’s we’ll be following closely the continued rollout of Universal Credit here in Leicester and looking at what more we can do to support local people who are struggling to make ends meet and ensure that no one goes hungry.
