Victory for Independent Feed the Future campaign as mayor of London commits to free school lunches

The mayor of London will tomorrow announce a bold emergency package to extend free school meals to every primary school child in the capital for one year, in an effort to help poorer families through the cost of living crisis.

It marks a major victory for The Independent’s Feed the Future campaign, in which we called for free school meals to be extended to all school children in England – both primary and secondary – who live in households on universal credit but miss out on free school meals because their household income, excluding benefits, is over the threshold of £7,400 a year.
