Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation is pleased to continue our support of the ‘Tackling Hunger’ campaign throughout February half-term.
As a way of fighting back against child hunger, the Foundation has created Rugby League-inspired packs, which will be distributed to Outwood Grange Academies Trust and Bishop Konstant Catholic Academy Trust schools situated across the district.
Each of the six-packs contains a themed menu and puzzle, which can be accessed from any of the Foundation’s social media accounts every day next week.
This follows Wakefield Council’s ‘Our Families, Our Future’ programme, which has since engaged with hundreds of families across the City of Wakefield.
‘Tackling Hunger’ aims to provide for families that require support, whilst ensuring that children can get enrichment through our activity camps and receive a fresh meal each day.
Foundation Community Manager and programme lead, James Stephenson, believes that children have been hit hard by the pandemic and the impact of this programme has been clear to see.
“Since July 2020, we have been able to host a series of fun activity camps situated across the city, which allows the children to feel at ease under the guidance of our community coaches,” Stephenson explained.
“It is very rewarding to see so many happy faces and know that each child who attends can receive a meal and the nourishment they need, outside of the school setting.
“Wakefield Council have been very supportive and proactive in helping ensure that as many families and children as possible are aware of the fun activity camps and support we are offering during the school holidays.”
The Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation are determined to fight back against child hunger and will do all we can to make a difference to our community.
