Alex supports free meals call for local college students

  • Stockton North MP Alex Cunningham is supporting the Association of Colleges’ No Free Lunch? campaign, calling on the Government to extend the provision of free meals to college students.

    If a 16- to 18-year-old from a disadvantaged background studies in a school sixth form, Academy or Free School, they are provided with a free meal.  However, if the same student chooses to study at a further education or sixth form college, they lose this entitlement.

    Alex Said:

    “This disparity which sees students treated differently according to where they choose to study is inherently unfair.  I fully support the No Free Lunch? campaign and hope that this issue can be resolved as soon as possible so that all students in my constituency are treated equally.”
