A Weston venue is collecting food donations to give out to children when schools close due to the coronavirus.
Staff at The Stable, in Wadham Street, are keen to help children from low-income families who are entitled to free school meals.
Manager Jemma Coles said: “We are worried about children in the community who may not have access to food as they are entitled to free school meals.
“We want to offer free breakfasts and lunches for children when the schools close.”
The Stable is appealing for donations of non-perishable lunchbox items, cereals and tupperware boxes to enable them to dish out the food.
They are also keen to hear from anyone who owns an ice cream van and could help out with deliveries. Families will be able to pick up lunches from The Stable, or from delivery vehicles.
To help out, you can drop items off at venue, or donate at www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/thestable
