Dozens of volunteers are this week making free packed lunches to feed youngsters during the school holidays.
Why? Does child benefit stop during the summer months? I’m pretty sure it doesn’t, so why aren’t parents feeding their own kids?
Their kindness has been hailed by leaders in the town who said their actions are an example of Bolton’s cracking community spirit.
More like an example of just how benefit-dependent the underclass has grown…
Naturally, there’s plenty of people willing to encourage dependency, rather than self-reliance:
The Bishop of Bolton Chris Edmondson said: “…I am involved myself with the free lunches programme.
“This initiative means that youngsters across Bolton and their families will have a very different summer to what they might have experienced.
“I encourage anyone who can to can get down and volunteer each morning or make a donation.”
I’ll send an IOU with the words ‘Feed your own kids!’ then.
There is, of course, a fakecharity at the heart of it all. Isn’t there always?
Urban Outreach is aiming to provide about 30,000 meals during the six-week holiday to help families who usually rely on free school meals.
The Bolton Lunches project is being expanded this year, following on from last year’s scheme which saw about 600 lunches delivered each day.
The charity is continuing to ask volunteers to help make the lunches every morning between 7.15am and 8.30am until September 4.
You mean, ‘free’ lunches (paid for by grants to the fakecharity from a whole host of government agencies, so coming out of the taxpayer pot), are popular with the welfare classes?
You don’t say…
