Charity Gets Funding for Kids’ Meals

Pembrokeshire FRAME has received over £9,000 in funding from the UK Community Renewal Fund. Working with St Marks VA School in Merlin’s Bridge, the charity will support families with the provision of up to 1,200 free hot meals and activities for up to 80 children. The Making It Happen Fund project will run for six weeks through the summer, and autumn half-term.

The main aim of the project is to ensure that children who receive free meals during term time will not be disadvantaged or go hungry during school holidays. The healthy meals will be prepared in FRAME’s commercial kitchen.

The project will also include a community gardening service at St Mark’s School.

Paul Hughes, chief officer at Pembrokeshire FRAME, said: “As a community-supporting charity, we are delighted to receive funding from the UK Community Renewal Fund to provide free hot meals to children during the holidays.”
