Alfreton Town Council is stepping in to help families who may find it difficult to provide meals for their children next week. With the announcement that the Government scheme to provide free school meals during school holidays is not being extended to next week's half term, and the continued hardship arising from the pandemic, the Town Council is keen to try and help.

From Monday, working in partnership with Alfreton House Tea Rooms, a packed lunch will be available free of charge to any family who is usually in receipt of free school meals or cannot provide a lunchtime meal to their children. Packed lunches will be available for collection from Alfreton House between 10-00 and 1-00 each weekday next week. To help gauge demand, it would be helpful if families who will be collecting packed lunches text 07856 208490 anonymously over the weekend just confirming how many lunches they will be picking up.
Town Mayor Councillor Marlene Bennett MBE, who will initially be funding the packed lunches through her Mayor's Allowance, said she was pleased that the Town Council could help in a small way in these unprecedented times and thanked the tea rooms for providing their services free of charge. She went on to encourage all those in genuine need to take advantage of the scheme, and said she hoped other businesses in the town would come forward to support a similar scheme in future school holidays if required.
