425,000 children in London don't have reliable access to the nutritious food they need to thrive

If you agree access to good food should be a right and not a privilege, sign up and pledge your support. We are looking for 1,000 champions to have their donations doubled up by the Childhood Trust.  £38.40 will deliver 200 meals, not 100 (see how it works)

I agree and I want my donation doubled!

How it works

  • You pledge your support today to become a Champion for London Children, and complete your donation when our Big Give campaign officially launches on 4 June 2024
  • The Childhood Trust will match any donations, doubling your impact to deliver twice as many meals to Londoners in need.
  • Your donation will help us raise enough money to deliver 500,000 meals to vulnerable families - making you a real Champion for London Children!

Child hunger in London is real

London is a world-leading cultural and economic capital, but child hunger hides in plain sight in every borough.​

Even those in work are struggling: last year, more than a quarter of working parents were forced to skip meals on multiple occasions so their children could eat. 

We are on a mission to change that: last year alone, we delivered 1 million kg of healthy nutritious food for school families to take home and cook up to 2.2 million meals. 

levelling the playing field, one healthy bite at a time

Poor nutrition can impact every aspect of a child's life.  Their physical health and growth, focus and learning, mental health and social skills can all suffer compared to children with healthy diets.  

That’s why fresh fruit and veg make up more than half of the food we provide to schools and families.
