Many people have contacted us about wanting to support the #EndChildFoodPoverty campaign. This campaign is urging the government to support vulnerable children & end child food poverty by expanding access to Free School Meals, providing meals & activities during holidays to stop holiday hunger & increasing the value of the Healthy Start scheme. There is an online petition asking the government to act.
In the meantime, communities are making their own provisions to make sure no child goes hungry.
Here is what The Bevy is doing to help:
- Throughout the pandemic The Bevy teamed up with Brighton Aldridge Community Academy to supply over 6,000 Meals on Wheels across the area and we continue to do so. Contact us if you want like more details on how to receive these meals or how to help. at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01273 281009
- This week, we will be supplying hot lunches to up to 40 children a day who are taking part in the half term holiday scheme at Moulsecoomb Primary organised by Brighton Table Tennis Club.
- We also received funds from Custom Pharma so Moulsecoomb Primary children could take part in a pumpkin hunt around their school and receive treats at the Bevy.
Help us to help others
Supporting the Bevy commercially helps us deliver our other activities, including supplying our meals on wheels which are free to anyone who can’t afford them. Come to The Bevy and enjoy a meal and some drinks with us – this will help keep us going and keep us supporting those in our community that need it.
We serve evening meals every Wednesday to Saturday with takeaways available to collect and we launch our roasts this Sunday. Have a look at our menu here →
