Kingdom Outreach

Providing Free School Lunches for school aged children within the borough.

An innovative scheme called the Blackburn and Darwen Summer Lunchbox Project, run by charity Kingdom Outreach and supported by Blackburn with Darwen Council has been launched to help struggling families by providing free packed lunches to children.

The initiative aims to tackle ‘holiday hunger’ and plug the gap for families during summer holidays who normally receive free school lunches during term time. It sees up to 50 volunteers making around 5,000 sandwiches per week to cater for the 1,080 children whose families have signed up for the six week long holiday period.
