Holidays not good news for hungry children


THE end of term is almost here, and although most youngsters are looking forward to the long break, thousands of children are about to lose their access to at least one hot meal a day.
Just four of the 17 autonomous communities in Spain have announced that summer programmes will be put into place to keep school dinners available, while in the rest of the country families who rely on the dinners to ensure their youngsters are fed are likely to have to look elsewhere for help.
So far, Andalucia, Cataluña, Valencia and the Canary Islands are the only regions to have announced summer camps and other projects which will include at least one meal a day for children in need.
