In light of recent news that school lunch vouchers will be cut during the half-term week, Nisa Local (Whitehills) convenience store is helping feed school students in need with its new free lunch program. The packed lunch includes a sandwich, drink and fruit and school students can collect the lunch from the counter between 8 am and 1 pm for the entire week.
Alex Kapadia, the owner of Nisa Local (Whitehills), announced the free lunch program over Facebook, closing the message with the statement: "Please do not be embarrassed to ask, times are tough and we are all in this together."
Other food organizations and convenience stores have also pledged their support. Individuals can see a full list of which businesses are offering support through the online website, Kids Meals Map.
