Enjoy free holiday meals this summer

Wednesday 12 July 2023

During the school summer holidays, children can pick up free holiday meals from libraries, leisure centres and play centres in Royal Greenwich. 

From Monday 24 July to Friday 25 August, any child can pick up a nutritious packed lunch from sites across the borough. There are no forms or fuss - simply turn up, tuck in and enjoy. 

The pickup locations will also be hosting a range of fun activities for children to get involved with, allowing parents to take a breather this summer. 

Cllr Matt Morrow, Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: “With so many families being impacted by the cost-of-living crisis, the Royal Borough of Greenwich is dedicated to making sure that no child goes hungry outside of school term time.   

“There’s no fuss with holiday meals, they’re available to anyone who needs one – no questions asked.  

“Despite receiving no direct funding, we know that there is a real need for schemes such as free holiday meals, so we’re committed to providing support for families and children who are struggling during such a turbulent time. This forms part of our effort to make sure that every child in Royal Greenwich reaches their full potential.”  

Find your closest library or leisure centre and check their serving time.
