Lunch Bunch

Following last summer’s Lunch Bunch pilot project, Islington Council is running a further pilot this Easter.

Lunch Bunch is a project to address holiday hunger in Islington children. It is open to children aged 6-12 years (year 1-7) who meet the national free school meals criteria, for families on benefits or low household incomes of less than £16,190 per year before tax.

Children will have the opportunity to enjoy a free, healthy lunch while spending time  with their peers having fun every day throughout the school Easter holidays.

Lunch Bunch is happening at a number of locations across Islington:

  • Cornwallis Adventure Playground, Cornwallis Road, N19 4LP
  • Central Library, 2 Fieldway Crescent, N5 1PF
  • Finsbury Park Community Hub, Andover Estate Community Centre,  55 Corker Walk, Andover Estate, N7 7RY
