Tulip Siddiq – 2021 Comments on Free School Meal Provision

The comments made by Tulip Siddiq, the Shadow Minister for Children, on 13 July 2021.

Feeding hungry children cannot be a part-time activity, yet this Conservative Government is again stripping away the support that millions of families rely on.

Ministers have had to be shamed into providing food for hungry children throughout the pandemic and it is a disgrace that we are having to do this all over again.

Ensuring no child goes hungry is at the heart of Labour’s Children’s Recovery Plan, which includes guaranteeing free school meals support over all school holidays during the pandemic.
