SCCI and the School Meals Holiday Provision
The SCCI Group is deeply honoured to support the inspirational Amber Wright and her free school meal initiative.
As the UK expends its collective energy mitigating the spread of COVID-19, it’s easy to forget that other problems exist in today’s crazy world.
With this in mind, The SCCI Group is deeply honoured to support the inspirational Amber Wright and her free school meal initiative.
Disheartened by the government’s decision to end school meal holiday provision, the 25-year old mother of two took affirmative action.
Using her home bakery business as a base, Amber spent October’s half-term ensuring that local families in need, had access to food. She cooked an assortment of nutritional meals (her menu includes pasta bakes, jacket potatoes, freshly baked bread and vegetables) and delivered each meal throughout local town, Takely, and surrounding areas in Essex.
Having struggled herself as a young, single mother, Amber knows what it’s like to be in need:
"After seeing Marcus Rashford's campaign getting rejected it broke my heart….so I took it upon myself, as I own my own business and have a five-star food rating, to offer food to anyone who needs it”.
Amber will repeat this incredible gesture over the Christmas holidays and has been overwhelmed by the support of the local community.
“I’m immensely proud to support Amber and this inspirational initiative” said SCCI Managing Director, Rob Wickings “and urge all those that read this, to also think about how they can help families in need.”
If you’d like to help Amber, she can be reached on 07534 817914 or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
These meals are being prepared by myself each day in half term and will be delivered to your door - or you can collect. This is not just for people in Takeley, this is for the surrounding villages and towns as well. Please, please I urge you to get in contact via Facebook, text or email."
