Planet Youth Muswell Hill
In light of the changes for "Free School Meals", We have decided to help out this half term to support any local families who may benefit from picking up lunch for their children.
This is a confidential service; however, we ask that only those that are in need of the support to use it. Our funds are limited so we want to ensure the lunches are going to the right place. You may email us confidentially letting us know how many children you have and how many days you'd need the lunch for. We will then confirm where and when to collect. We will pre-make the lunch but there will be an option to collect a bag of food to last for enough lunches for the week. On top of this there many local food banks that are open all year round, if you need to be put in touch with your local one please ask. Email us Here7
