STAFF at a Mediterranean bistro in Bromsgrove have cooked a staggering 41 meals for disadvantaged children to eat over next week’s school break.
Waz’s Bistrot, based in The Strand, decided to take action after the Government’s decision on Wednesday to not extend free meals over school holidays.
The free packed lunches, which were put together by four members of staff today, includes pasta, a piece of fruit and a drink.
Owner of the restaurant, Waz, asked his staff on Thursday if they would like to volunteer putting the meals together.
Marion, who works front of house, told the Standard: “I couldn’t walk away from the opportunity to help people who are in need.
“We are are a local business wanting to support the local community and understand the impact Covid-19 has had on people.
“Four of us went in to volunteer today, some with our children.”
The meals, which will be collected tonight, will be distributed to local families by members of a Facebook group called South Birmingham Lunches.
