Surrey Liberal Democrats are calling to extend free school meals so that no child living in poverty misses out - even during holidays and periods of lockdown.

After a high-profile campaign led by footballer Marcus Rashford, the Government provided food vouchers for the poorest families through the summer holidays.

Sadly an opposition motion, supported by Liberal Democrats, that would have extended free school meals across Christmas and Easter holidays was voted down by the Conservative Government.

We're calling on Surrey County Council, who are able to step in and provide the support to our local schools to be able to provide food vouchers, to take action where the Government has refused to.
