Feeding Birkenhead

Feeding Birkenhead
 
Feeding Birkenhead has established a project to provide free meals and activities for children during school holidays. Over the past three years, community groups in Beechwood, Central and North Birkenhead, Prenton, Rock Ferry, and Tranmere have provided this service for a total of 2,000 children. Most of those children receive free school meals during term time and would have been hungry in the absence of the project. Much of the food supplied by the project is sourced from local supermarkets’ surplus stocks which, while they are still of good quality, would otherwise be wasted. Fun activities offered by the project include arts, crafts, cooking, games, and sports. 
 
The program of activities for the February half term are available to download below.
