Helping to address holiday hunger

An appeal has been launched to help children in Wigan who are at risk of falling into holiday hunger during the summer school break, when the safety net of free school meals is removed. Homelessness charity The Brick – which is home to Wigan’s largest foodbank – has started a food drive to help beat school holiday hunger for hundreds of families.

Now they are asking individuals, schools and businesses to get behind the food drive to support youngsters in the borough to have a better summer.
