We are having a huge, positive impact on the lives of young people and the wider community. We're directly supporting disadvantaged young people in North London and this translates into tangible results that affect the long term health, well being and outcomes for them and in turn their families and communities.
Holiday hunger is a real problem for low-income families, who normally receive free school meals. Providing extra meals during the school holidays can put immense strain on their finances, meaning that their children often go without, which has a detrimental effect on them developmentally and educationally. Positive Role Models is committed to tackling holiday hunger, and we believe passionately that no child should ever go hungry. In the first step of our mission to help eradicate the problem, we have committed to feeding children twice a week, throughout the year, and over more days during the holiday period.
