Fareshare - a charity that tackles hunger and food waste - is giving food to 400 holiday clubs this year, compared to 350 last year, which is an increase of 15%.

Currently in the UK, there are around 4.1 million children in the UK living in poverty, meaning that there isn't enough money to buy the food that they need. As a result, children may miss meals or go for even longer without enough food.
