About Holiday Hunger
A group of businesses and individuals lead by PDS CNC Engineering and Livewell are helping to provide lunches for children across East Lancashire (Burnley, Pendle, Hyndburn, Rossendale, Blackburn with Darwen and Ribble Valley). They are looking to help those who will suffer from Holiday Hunger over the October 2020 half term.
“We recognise that many people are going through really challenging times at the moment, and so we as a community have come together to provide lunches for East Lancashire children next week, given that the Government are not extending the FSM provision for the half term.

Parents can book meals at and they will be distributed next week. The meals will be prepared by established food businesses. If you are able to inform and promote this to parents, we would very much appreciate it.”
