Feeding the children
When it is school holiday this week and many children will therefore not receive free school meals following the vote in parliament.
Among those children missing out on free school meals are children of refugee and asylum seeker families in Calderdale.
With a grant from Community Foundation For Calderdale it has been possible to feed many of these children. The food parcels are being delivered by St Augustine’s Centre and Together We Grow volunteers. So far, we have delivered food parcels to 30 families. However, there are a further 100 refugee and asylum seeker families living in Calderdale.
Together We Grow is committed to raise another £1000 towards buying food parcels when schools are closed for holidays or lockdown. If you want to make a contribution towards food parcels for children you can do this online here: https://localgiving.org/charity/togetherwegrow/ or via our website: http://togetherwegrow2.org.uk/. You can Gift Aid your donation. You can also send a cheque made out to Together We Grow to Warcock Hill Barn, Long Causeway, Blackshaw Head, Hebden Bridge, HX77JB.
