The newly launched organisation is giving free lunches to school children in Nottinghamshire who are needing help over lockdown.

The page, which was only created last week has already got nearly 200 followers on Instagram and caters to Nottinghamshire families who need extra support feeding their children.

The creator of the charity, who prefers to remain anonymous, so not to take all the credit says: “Following the pictures of what the government were sending out to the kids, it made me so angry and disappointed that I felt like I had to do something to help.

“Parental circumstances aren’t anything to do with children and they are getting hugely affected by it. So many parents have lost jobs or are on furlough and the kids are suffering.”

The Lunch Bunch packed lunches consist of: sandwiches, fruit, crisps, sweet treats and a fruit juice.

Also, they take into consideration any dietary requirements and encourage parents to let the team know what their children’s favourite snacks are so they can include them too.

The lunches can be requested 5 days a week on a fortnightly basis and the page acts as a safe space for parents with all requests being made confidentially.

A Just Giving page has been set up which has already raised over £100 to help keep the charity funded and produce more lunches.

The Lunch Bunch are encouraging anyone who needs it to come to them for help which can be accessed through their Instagram and Facebook pages @thelunchbunchng.

“If this helps just one family, I know it will make a huge difference.”
