Weston’s Grand Pier has pledged to back the #EndChildFoodPoverty campaign by footballer Marcus Rashford.
The decision comes in light of the Government’s decision on October 21 to vote against extending free school meals for kids during the half-term.
The Grand Pier’s head of operations, Remy Haudeceour, said: “As a local business in Weston, we are teaming up with the Food Bank to provide a free lunch to any child that would normally be eligible for a
free school meal this half term.
“Also, we will spread some joy by adding our signature bag of candy floss to each meal as well as access to the rides on the Grand Pier.”
