North Lakes Foodbank is extending a scheme to give schoolchildren a free meal every weekday during the summer holidays.

The charity has teamed up with Sellafield and the CN Group to fund the project.

Every child who is eligible for the pupil premium, which is given to low-income youngsters, can benefit from the scheme.

The charity says it could be the only hot meal of the day for some pupils.
