A new scheme is to be rolled out across South Tyneside to make sure children don't go hungry in the school summer holidays.
The Council is to provide free meals at centres across the Borough for three days during the middle four weeks of the long school holidays to ease the pressure on struggling families.
There will a mix of picnic - style food and hot food available depending on the day.
The meals will be provided at the following venues:
- Biddick Children's Centre
- Horsley Hill Children's Centre
- Boldon Children's Centre
- Whitburn Children's Centre
- Marine Park Children's Centre
- Riverside Children's Centre
- Simonside Climbing Wall
- Hedworthfield CA
- Jarrow Focus
