Many families are telling us that they find the school holidays particularly difficult because they rely on the Free Meals they are able to get during term time.

Sefton CVS is coordinating a network of community venues and local organisations that will be able to offer Children and Young People between the ages of 5 to 18 free meals during the Summer Holidays.

We currently have 7 local organisations who have come forward and offered to support the initiative across the borough – including groups based in Bootle (2), Crosby (2), Litherland (1) and Southport (2). Details of these organisations will be available shortly.

Sefton 4 Good have launched a dedicated BT MyDonate page which we hope to use to crowdfund to support this initiative. Click here to donate

Individuals can also donate by phone by texting SEFT44 followed by the ammount (e.g. £5, £10, £20) to 70070.

Funds raised will help our local groups to provide:

  • Food & Drink supplies
  • Training & Quality Assurance (i.e. Food Hygiene)
  • Activities and events
  • Utility and running costs

Sefton CVS and Sefton 4 Good are encouraging local individuals, businesses and organisation to give what they can.

Volunteers Needed! 

To support the initiative, Sefton CVS and the Volunteer Centre Sefton are appealing for volunteers to help our network of local organisations in providing free meals to Sefton’s schoolchildren. 

Volunteers are needed to help cook and prepare meals and assist with activities at the various centres across the borough.
