Motion: End Holiday Hunger


That this Assembly recognises the high levels of child poverty and the increasing costs associated with sending children and young people to school; further recognises that the rising cost of food is putting many families under huge financial pressure; acknowledges the importance of children and young people receiving a nutritious meal and the role that plays in their learning and development; agrees that the cut to the School Holiday Food Grant scheme has had the most impact on disadvantaged and vulnerable children and young people; and calls on the Minister of Education to bring forward a plan to end holiday hunger.
