At Chichester District Foodbank, we understand the importance of ensuring that children have access to nutritious meals, especially during school holidays.

Who are KLPs for?

Our KLPs are designed for families with children within the Chichester District who usually receive free school lunches, who might otherwise go without lunch during school holidays. We aim to support those in our community facing financial hardship, ensuring no child goes hungry when school meals are not available.
