during the summer holidays some families face a constant struggle to find enough money to feed their children.
In the North East, there are approximately 132,000 children living in poverty this equates to around 24% of all children in the region
“39% of teachers say there are pupils in their school who do not get enough to eat over the school holidays”
“75% of parents with an annual income less than £15,000 say that affording food during school holidays is a constant struggle”
