Local Businesses Pledge To Feed Schoolchildren

Local Businesses Pledge To Feed Schoolchildren

Businesses across Cheshire have come together to offer free school meals to schoolchildren in need during the half-term holidays who due to the current circumstances may go without.

It follows a debate regarding free school meals in which the current measures to offer a meal for children outside of term time have not been extended after a vote in parliament.

This decision has been strongly and widely criticised, most notably by England footballer Marcus Rashford, who has campaigned for access to free school meals throughout the pandemic.

As a result of this, several Chester based restaurants, takeaways and businesses have stepped up to offer food during school holidays to make sure that no child goes hungry, in an act that showcases the incredible community spirit of Chester.

Whether it takes the form of a lunch meal or is packed in storage, Chester businesses and charities from all walks of life have offered their support to families starving as a result of the effects of the current circumstances.

Businesses, individuals and charities that have offered a lifeline have shown the incredible sense of generosity found in Chester, as well as the power of solidarity and sense of injustice.

Almost as soon as the decision was made, organisations, many of which are in sectors such as hospitality and been significantly affected by the effects of lockdown, immediately offered to help in whatever ways they could and being a lifeline for people struggling the most.

The sheer scale of generosity in the community fills us all with pride.

We understand the importance of storage for Chester businesses. For more information and advice, contact Lock Stock Storage today.
