Feed the Weans, Feed the Future
Unite for a Workers Economy in Scotland has partnered with Together Against Debt and the Scottish Trade Union Congress – Women’s Committee to drive change to ensure that no child has to go hungry during the school day, so we can give children the best start in life because hungry children cannot learn.
Only recently the Scottish government incorporated the UNCRC ‘United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child’ into Scots law. We believe educational institutions should provide food, good nourishment, and nutrition to ALL children without means-testing. Implementing this should be at no detriment to the school, providing school meals for all children and cancelling school meal debt shouldn't come from individual school budgets.
- End means-based ‘free’ school meals and provide school dinners for all children
- Eradicate all school meal debt
No child should have to go hungry during the school day, we must give children the best possible start in life because hungry children cannot learn. Sign the Feed the Weans, Feed the Future petition today.
