The scale of holiday hunger is huge, with over 1.5 million children receiving Free School Meals and millions more children living in poverty. It poses an urgent question. What happens to the children in your community during the thirteen weeks of the school holidays? For too many, the food runs out.
But what if your church could bring the answer?
TLG Make Lunch enables and equips churches to bring hope to struggling children through holiday lunch clubs. Each club provides free, hot and healthy meals to children and families who would otherwise go hungry. Through TLG Make Lunch, your church can provide vital support to some of the most vulnerable children in your community and, in addition, build relationships with families in desperate need of the loving support of your compassionate church family.
We’ve seen that churches in every context can provide a lifeline during the school holidays. Since Make Lunch began, our partner churches have cooked and served over 100,000 meals in more than 100 locations across the UK. All our kitchens are run by volunteers who believe that even just one meal for one child could make a vital difference.
