Buy One School Dinner and Give Another one for Free

February 21, 2012 5:27 PM

I am encouraging all schools in Carshalton and Wallington to get involved in the Really Good School Dinner programme - the UN's initiative to help feed thousands of school children in poor and developing countries.

The programme, run by the UN's World Food Programme (WFP) encourages school children, for one week in February to buy a school meal and donate 10p.

Each 10p then pays for a whole meal for a child in a developing country. It helps them get an education - many children in the developing world would not be able to go to school unless a meal was provided as they would have to work instead in order to feed themselves.

This initiative, now in its fourth year has been incredibly successful - already helping to feed over 450,000 school children in 60 countries across the world.

We should be incredibly proud that schools in England have such an impressive record at helping the poorest school children in the world.

I encourage everyone to get involved in this campaign and help provide both a meal and an education to some of the world's poorest.

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
