Make Lunch

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 70,000 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.

Things had got so bad that my daughter's school had put things in place for us over the school holidays. One of the things we were told about was the Make Lunch club at the Baptist church in town. Make Lunch has turned out to be a lifesaver for us – a complete godsend. - Joanne, mum of one

Our vision is to see TLG Make Lunch clubs transforming the lives of struggling children and families in all four corners of the UK. To explore whether your church could run a TLG Make Lunch club, begin the journey today by making an enquiry. Just click the button below!
