Half Term Food Support for Children

27th May 2021

Half-term Food Support

All children – from nursery to college-age – in need of food support will be able to pick up lunch over the half-term from ten food hubs/collection points across the borough at:

•           3 sites in Birkenhead (Rock Ferry, Birkenhead North, Central Birkenhead)
•           3 sites in Wallasey (Liscard/Seacombe, New Brighton, Leasowe)
•           2 sites in Wirral South (Eastham, New Ferry)
•           2 sites in Wirral West (Woodchurch, Hoylake)

Each hub will provide 50 lunches per day for four days of the May half-term, providing a total of 2000 meals.

Wirral Council's half-term food partner, Neo Community, have produced a map, which shows the location of the ten lunch collection points and times.  Lunch is available at these locations over the half -term should your children need it.

Additional support for half-term

As well as the support outlined above, help is available across the borough from a wide range of community-based groups. The Wirral Infobank website (www.wirralinfobank.co.uk) provides information about their services, including community food providers and social supermarkets.
