Galleywood Make Lunch
Holiday hunger is huge with over 1.5 million children receiving free school meals and millions more children living in poverty.
Feeding the local community has been a big part of St Michael’s church for a number of years. Supporting families in need ensures we are showing them God’s grace and living out Jesus’s commandment of loving our neighbours. Make lunch ensures any family, who for whatever reason, can access a hot meal during the school holidays and enjoy some fun craft activities with their children.
Galleywood Make lunch runs once a week over the school holidays providing practical support for local families, families are referred to the church via other agencies.
Galleywood Parish council have awarded grants each year since Galleywood Make Lunch started in 2016.
Volunteers from St Michael’s Church help with this project by cooking a meal and providing activities for the children. In 2020 and 2021 we provided food parcels and bags of activities. During Summer 2021 and the October half-term we were once again able to meet face to face. During 2022 support will continue with lunches, food parcels and children's activities.
TLG, transforming lives for good, www.tlg.org.uk give ongoing training, access to funding and a link to a regional co-ordinator.
St Michael’s Junior School and Galleywood Infant School are essential to the success of this project. They provide free use of their school hall and kitchen.
St Michael and All Angels Church has prayer at the centre of everything it does. The prayer chain prays regularly for this community outreach before each school holiday.
