To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to provide meals to children outwith school term times.
Local authorities have the flexibility to provide meals and activities for children during school holidays where they think this is needed. We know that some local authorities such as East Renfrewshire and North Ayrshire are already doing good work to support children in their areas.
We have committed £1 million over the next two years to provide new practical support for children experiencing food insecurity during school holidays.
