Event description

Description

As you'll no doubt be very aware, Southampton and the local area currently has a number of organisations, individuals and initiatives geared towards tackling the issue of food poverty - with a particular focus on those families and children who go hungry during the school holidays. It's an issue that's widely been referred to as 'holiday hunger' in the media.

Therefore, we are launching the Southampton Holiday Provision Steering Group, funded through a VIVID grant administered by Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Foundation.

The aims of the Steering Group are threefold:

  1. partnering to improve the food opportunities on offer to families during the 13 weeks of school holidays across the year;

  2. increase local knowledge of what's available, through joined-up signposting;

  3. joining forces to increase our influence on 'holiday hunger' as a local and national issue

We very much want to engage a diverse range of voices from across the City.

Please come along to our our launch meeting, so that we can ensure the Steering Group meets the City's growing needs. Reserve your place below.
