No Free Lunch?


Between March 2012 and September 2013, AoC ran its No Free Lunch? campaign, which called on the Government to extend the provision of free meals to disadvantaged 16 to 18-year-olds who study at general further education and sixth form colleges.

In September 2013, Deputy Prime Minister Rt Hon Nick Clegg MP announced that free meals would be made available to disadvantaged 16-18 years olds studying at colleges as of September 2014. The parliamentary work was particularly successful as the campaign secured widespread cross party support.
