Alec Bannister (05-16) and Cam Henderson (11-16) are working on a project to help combat ‘holiday hunger’ in Southwark.
The pandemic has had a devastating impact on children’s access to food. In London alone, 400,000 children currently face food insecurity, and right here on our doorstep in Southwark, increasing numbers of children are eligible for free school meals, leaving them vulnerable to holiday hunger outside of term time, during weekends and school holidays.
At a time when global communities are facing extraordinary challenges, Dulwich College is committed to making a difference wherever they can, especially in the local community. Alec Bannister and Cam Henderson, inspired to help combat holiday hunger amongst children in Southwark, have launched an initiative to raise funds to support Kitchen Social: Take & Make Boxes, part of the Mayor’s Fund for London, to provide healthy recipe boxes to children during school holidays.
