Did you know that most of the **750,000 students** in the UK who rely on Free School Meals don't get to keep the change from their daily £2.30 allowance for lunch? Over time, this makes a huge difference to children from poorer homes where food isn't always on the table.
It stops children from being able to save up a bit of money to spend when they need extra food. It means that if they attend a lunchtime activity - like a music, drama or sports club - they lose out on that given day's lunch money altogether.
All this change adds up to **£65 million** each year that's pocketed by school meal providers: which can be private companies, local councils or schools themselves.
