North Lanarkshire Council is planning to provide free meals to low income families 365 days a year. This is part of efforts to tackle 'holiday hunger'. The council will pilot the initiative over the Easter holidays and could then extend into the summer holidays.
This commitment follows a recent announcement from the UK Government to research the issue and support some targetted pilots in summer 2018. Both these announcements demonstrate a growing recognition of the important role which local and national government can play in addressing 'holiday hunger'.
