The ‘Holiday Hunger Project’ in partnership with Savona

  16th August 2019

The ‘Holiday Hunger Project’ has been running for 3 years, with Savona being involved in donations since the very start.

Recognising that families were regularly going to food banks and struggling particularly over the school holidays when free school meals are not an option, Sam at Growing Minds joined forces with Louise at Southwest families and the initiate to start the program began.

The project is rolled out over x3 schools once a week during the school holidays and runs solely because of dedicated hard-working volunteers, who take time out to cook up a storm and prepare fun activities for the children.

When Savona went along to visit the project, we were delighted to see many activities taking place including, bread making, face painting, crafts and sports as well as a delicious lunch being prepared for all. The kids were particularly excited to try the ‘Mickey Mouse’ style pizzas inspired by a recipe from Country Range.

Well done to all the wonderful volunteers, we hope to see the project to further grow and flourish in years to come.
