Make Lunch

Make Lunch

Rachael and the team from the Oasis Café and the Lifespring Church were very busy during the summer holidays serving a two course lunch for over sixty children and complimentary bacon cobs for the parents.  The lunch was followed by some exciting activities led by Liz and her team. Parents participated also which made it a great family experience.  This happened twice every week during the school holiday.

Lifespring’s Lunch Kitchen was run by 16 wonderful volunteer from Lifespring and St. Paulinus churches. They understand that one meal for one child makes a difference, and the parents/carers certainly appreciated it.  One parent said, “It’s brilliant.  My kids love coming”.  Another parent said, “it’s an amazing thing the church is doing.  We are all very grateful”.  They certainly appreciated the chance of having activities through the summer.

The Make Lunch project is a nationwide initiative offering a free hot meal to children from low income families. They work together with the schools in their communities to make sure the families that need it the most get invited. Some Kitchens open every day of every school holiday, others might do a day a week, or pick a week or two to focus on. At some of the Kitchens, the children get involved with making the food.  Lifespring offers  crafts, games and other activities. It varies from place to place, but the main aim is the same - providing meals to support families on tight budgets.

If a parent/carer would like to book a place, please ring 01623 860303 and ask to speak to Mike about “Make Lunch”. (Report taken from the Roundabout)
