St John’s Foundation, Feeding Britain and Bath and North East Somerset Council are delighted to announce a £30,000 fund to support the provision of food during the 2020 school summer holiday period.
We are delighted that the government has confirmed its intention to extend free school meal provision to cover this year’s summer holidays. However, we are well aware that funding is still required to support organisations working with hungry children across Bath and North East Somerset, particularly those who may not qualify for free school meals. There is also an ongoing need for long-term support to address the causes of food poverty.
Through this small grants programme, awards of up to £3,000 will enable charities and statutory services in Bath and North East Somerset to deliver support to households with school-age children at risk of hunger and malnutrition. Preference will be given to projects seeking to address both immediate need and reduce vulnerability to future food insecurity and food poverty.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday 3rd July. Applicants will be notified of the selection panel’s decision in the week beginning 13th July.
