On Wednesday (October 21), MPs voted against continuing the provision of free school meals throughout this half term (Monday October 26 - Friday October 30) and up until Easter 2021.

The result caused huge debate across the country but it has also seen a whole host of organisations come together to cover the shortfall.

Across Peterboorugh, many businesses and charities have offered food to those children that were set to miss out.

Below is a list of those, along with information on how you can either donate or access support.
