Food, clothes and more to be given to poor and vulnerable children – the National Government created the need in the first place
Breakfast for hungry Kiwi children…
The National Party government in New Zealand is responsible for the situation that the children of the poor and needy find themselves in today. John Key and his cabinet know they had to do what the country was demanding – feed the kids so they can learn! We are not fooled by this act of political expediency!
|The Government is today announcing a scheme that’ll not only see needy kids getting breakfast at school but will see some of them getting clothes, healthcare and hygiene products.
The food for vulnerable children will see the KickStart breakfast programme expanded with both Fonterra and Sanitarium partnering the Government to supply food to all schools that need it, five days a week.
The Government’s agreed to contribute half the cost of the expansion, costing taxpayers $9.5 million over the next five years.
Another $1.5 million will be spent on helping KidsCan to provide more clothes, health and hygiene to disadvantaged children.
