A restaurant and volunteers in a West Sussex village have joined forces to provide food for children who would normally have free school meals.
More than 100 bags are being distributed around East and West Wittering to support families that are self-isolating.
Following the closure of schools across the country, the governor of East Wittering Primary School noted there was no plan in place to support families who needed help feeding their children, where they would usually have access to free school meals.
Many restaurants and other businesses across East and West Wittering then came together to offer items that could be parcelled up and delivered to families in the area.
The Boulevard Restaurant in East Wittering posted on social media yesterday its food parcels that staff had put together to help local school children.
In one day, volunteers on the project delivered to 39 families who needed help.
Lisa Clark, a volunteer on the scheme, says families have been blown away by the response from the community.
Headteacher of East Wittering Primary School, Justine Brooks, says the school wanted to make sure families struggling financially due to the coronavirus were supported while schools were closed.
