Barnsley & Penistone Liberal Democrats are calling for the Council to extend free school meals not just for the October half term, but also Christmas so that no child living in poverty misses out - even during holidays and lockdown.
No child should go to bed hungry in our Town.
If the Conservative Government won't ensure that our children won't go hungry then it's time for the Council to do the right thing and extend the local holiday free school meal scheme over Christmas.
As Marcus Rashford has shown with determination you can make a difference and feed children who will go hungry. Barnsley Council should now show the same determination and humanity and implement a local scheme for Christmas.
Barnsley Borough Council need to do the right and decent thing. Our town’s hungry children need you. Don’t let them down.
