Autumn is here and Platform Glasgow East End  is returning with their free food programme for the October school holiday. Running from Mon 11 – Fri 15 October, from 11.30am – 1pm, they  will be providing free meal bags to local children and their families to take away and eat at home.
This is a drop-in service and no referral or sign up is required – just turn up on the day. Meals can be collected from The Bridge car park, outside the main entrance to the building. Bags will contain a drink and a mix of cereal, snacks, treats and fruit, as well as a meal from local suppliers.
There will also be free art activities throughout the week which will be themed around nature, the environment / COP 26 and Halloween! These are aimed at kids aged 5 – 11yrs but are suitable for the whole family to join in. Stay tuned to social media for updates!
