Halton Housing donates 2,500 school meals to Halton children

28th October 2020

2 minutes

Halton Housing has proudly donated £1,500 to help fund meals for local children in need, equating to 2,500 meals.

The donation has been made to ‘Helping Halton’s Kids’, a group of local businesses formed specifically in response to support local children following the Government not extending the free school meal scheme over the holidays.

Throughout half-term, they will be aiming to provide more than 1,000 packed lunches daily for children, distributed from 14 different locations across Widnes and Runcorn.

Anyone wishing to request a meal can do so by contacting Helping Halton Kids via Facebook or text message, and can be assured it is confidential. Others can make referrals on a person’s behalf. No questions, no declines – all request welcomed.

In addition, Halton Housing has donated £3,000 to food banks in Halton, with the money being split equally between Widnes and Runcorn.

Cheryl McCabe, Halton Housing’s Social Impact Officer said: “It’s been a difficult year for everyone, with some families having been hit harder than others.

“At Halton Housing, we are all about improving people’s lives, we hope our donation will go some way to support the borough’s children and families. Helping Halton’s Kids and Widnes and Runcorn Food Banks are doing an incredible job and its services are more crucial now than ever before.”

Due to the already overwhelming demand and support, Helping Halton Kids envisage and aim to run this initiative longer term. They are running on donations and volunteer time.

For further information, including collection locations, please see the group’s Facebook page.
