Kids in Greenwich don't have to worry where their next meal is coming from this half-term as the council's mobile kitchen Autumn Feast returns to serve up another round of healthy free meals.
The kitchen made its debut as Summer Feast during the summer holidays when it served up delicious lunches to school-aged children from across the borough.
Autumn Feast will once again be run by Greenwich Co-operative Development Agency (GCDA) in partnership with Greenwich Leisure Limited (GLL), who are also part funding the project, and Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) Youth Services.

'No child goes hungry'
Cllr Danny Thorpe, Leader of the Council said: "During term-time many of the borough's children benefit from a healthy free school lunch, but when the holidays come parents can struggle to foot the bill of extra meals.
"Food poverty is a real issue for many families and with this scheme the Council can help to make sure that no child goes hungry. And besides the obvious advantage of a full stomach, the children have a great time eating delicious food with their friends."
