    Default Indian charity offers free school meals

    Indian child poverty charity offers free school meals in England | School meals | The Guardian

    A charity that feeds millions of poor children in India has joined the drive to end holiday hunger in England and distributed its first meals from a new kitchen in Watford.

    Hot vegetarian dishes cooked for less than £2 each using a model developed to feed the hungry in cities such as Mumbai and Ahmedabad were dispatched to a school in north London on Tuesday amid growing pressure on the government to reverse its decision not to fund free school meals this half-term.

    Trays of hot cauliflower cheese and mixed vegetable pasta cooked by chefs working for the Akshaya Patra charity, which produces 1.8m meals for schools daily in India, were collected by Kate Bass, the headteacher of Mora primary school in Cricklewood, from a purpose-built kitchen designed to cook 9,000 meals a day.

    Impressive how the Tory is turning the UK into a 3rd world slum.

    you do know many of the soup kitchens are run by sikhs and muslims in west london?

    if you are ever truly hungry go to the temple they will feed you.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    only if you are a choir boy allegedly.

    To be fair the boys at the seminary did feed the poor on a regular basis.

    Yep. It's a normal thing to feed those in need, generally with no questions asked or forms proving eligibility required.

    It's insane to provide international aid to a state with nukes!

    Doubt that was from the temple it tends to be vegetarian.
