The city of Liverpool consists of six boroughs – Halton, Sefton, Wirral, Knowsley, St Helens and Liverpool. There are thought to be 82,205 children living in poverty across our city. That’s 25.6% of all children who are living in households that are having to go without food or are missing meals as a result of the cost of living crisis we are facing in the UK.
Rising food, housing and energy costs are affecting the most vulnerable families across Liverpool. Les Flintcroft- MCKS Charity Chairman estimates that 9 children in a class of 30 are thought to be living in poverty.
Holly Lodge and MCKS Charity Foundation UK are working together to support our students and their families. Holly Lodge is excited to announce the opening of its ‘Dignity Food Pantry’.
