New kids meals map launched to support Marcus Rashford campaign

A new map has been launched today to support families and children over the October half-term. The website is designed to show the businesses, community organisations and councils who have announced that they will be providing free meals to vulnerable children over the October half-term.  

In just a few days following the launch, the map has more than 1,000 pins of sites where children and families can receive food support. 

The map has been built by communications agency PLMR who are supporting the #EndChildFoodPoverty campaign. Businesses, local authorities and charity organisations can make contact via the website to be added to the map.  

The map shows the unprecedented response to the call to action from Marcus Rashford’s campaign after it went viral on social media in response to a parliamentary vote not to extend the Free School Meals over the October half-term. 

The parliamentary petition launched by Marcus Rashford has also received a huge increase in public support.
