NO MORE "ARE YOU ENTITLED?" NO MORE HUNGER AT SCHOOL!

Hi all, I hope to get your support.
I recently thought of creating a campaign / petition in light of aiming to bridge inequality within the free school meal system in our schools.

I thought it is very important to offer all students without exception or background a free school meal and this will bring equality, reduce/eradicate bullying and stigmatisation. I truly believe that this is one of the solution to bridge the inequality gap and strengthen inclusion in our schools.

I truly believe that strong work needs to be done with students across the country. Fight for racism, social inequalities, bullying, "affordability gap", attainment gap can be eradicated by offering all UK students a free school meal from September 2020. This will allow students to bond in better, clear stigmatisation as some students on free school meals are seen "as the poor/disadvantaged children" which should not happen if all are on the same boat; others are bullied by peers and sometimes their parents cursed for something that is not their fault. Hence Free School Meal for all will bring a sense of equality!

Of course some parents might say "I am working hence I can pay" however I believe there are many working parents "who cannot afford to provide a healthy meal for their kids and this can be due to multiple reasons and or affordability" especially in these difficult times.

Even though the government overturned its decision to offer free school meal vouchers to those entitled during the summer holiday, this does not solve the problem. Many more school kids will go hungry because their parents cannot afford it; many on furlough are started to be told that their workplaces are going into administration or simply closing down.

I believe successful achievement from this campaign / petition will make a big change in our education system, students' attainment, inclusion and sense of equality.

Remember that this is a concern for all therefore whether your child is or is not on free school meal; whether you are or are not a parent/carer; whether you are a student or not, we need your support! 

I hope your support in driving this campaign successful can lead to this matter being taken more seriously. Your signature is your voice so please sign, promote and share this campaign / petition with your networks.

Thank you in advance!
