Kitchen Social is a programme run by the Mayors Fund for London that addresses the growing and serious issue of children and young people facing food insecurity and social isolation outside of term time. The programme gives children and young people a safe place to go during the school holidays where they can socialise, make new friends and get a free, healthy meal.

Since 2017, 68,347 children have been supported and 95,8427 meals have been provided through the Kitchen Social Scheme.

The breakdown by year can be seen in the attached spreadsheet.
