Child poverty is on the rise across the UK and figures show that there are in the region of 4,900 children living in poverty in Daventry alone. This can mean that a very large number of children go short of food on an ongoing basis. A free school meal during term time can be a lifeline to these children, but unfortunately this stops when the schools break up for holidays.

It is the aim of 'Food For Thought Daventry' to offer these children and families a hot nutritious meal 5 days a week during every school holiday. We also hope to be able to do this in a sympathetic way so that it gets the community together, eating together without any stigma or embarrassment. Our aim is to try and alleviate holiday hunger in Daventry whilst getting a community lunchtime meeting point for children and families to meet, get to know each other and feel comfortable.

This position requires someone who can wash and dry pots, pans, crockery and cutlery and help with clearing up after service.


You do not need any specialist skills or professional experience - just a friendly manner!
