Free autumn half-term meals at Charlton Manor School

Charlton Manor School
The school has a track record for healthy eating initiatives

Boris Johnson and his government don’t think vulnerable children should be helped with free half-term meals during the pandemic. Others disagree. At Charlton Manor School, they are offering free meals this half-term between noon and 1.45pm.

The school has a track record of healthy eating initiatives, including opening a community café last year.

Further afield, Greenwich Council is also offering free meals between noon and 1pm each day at Woolwich library, and Woolwich Adventure Playcentre at 2pm on Friday (see other locations). The Pelton Arms in Greenwich is offering free pizzas today, Wednesday and Thursday from 1pm to 3pm (see details).
