The purpose of our group, until child poverty is reduced substantially or eliminated, is to help fill that hunger gap by providing meals to children during school holidays coordinating with other local projects and organisations.

We are a not-for-profit community-based group; we work with schools to find ways to feed the children during school holidays.
We operate when a school is closed for the holidays.
We raise funds and work with schools, communities and parents to provide meals for pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium & Pupil Premium Plus as well as others with demonstrable need.
We actively encourage community involvement and learning.
We provide meals that are non-perishable. They are prepared, and freshly cooked, by each individual family in their own home.

Covid-19 Response Update

In response to Covid-19, Feed a Child has adapted the way we work. Thanks to council funding and your donations we were able to offer all primary schools in the bay the opportunity to have emergency meal kits during term time alongside holiday meal kits for the 12 primary schools identifying the most need.

Thanks to your continued donations and funding from the National Lottery we are able to announce we will be continuing our response until the End of December 2020 both in term and non term time.

We also acknowledge there are other families with children aged 11 and under needing help and we are looking at ways in which we can support them and will trial new ways if needed. This also includes our continued work with Eotas children.

Thank you all for your continued support!

We will supply Take Away meal kits containing non-perishable food for each school to dispense to their families.

We would be truly grateful for ANY donation of these non-perishable foods:

We especially need some of the tummy-fillers that form the basis for our meals:



Chopped tomatoes

Soups - especially chunky ones


Chili Con Carne

Peas and other vegetables

Hot Dogs

Tins of new potatoes

Creamy Pasta Bake Sauces

Pasta and sauce packets

500g bags of pasta and spaghetti

500g bags of rice or boil in the bag rice

Tins of fruit

Each meal is accompanied by a tin of fruit for something sweet and nutritious after the meal: peaches, mandarin pieces, pears or pineapple slices for example.
