Mullan welcomes additional funding towards food support for vulnerable young people

Sinn Féin education spokesperson and deputy chair of the education committee Karen Mullan has welcomed Finance Minister Conor Murphy’s announcement of £400,000 to provide additional food support to vulnerable young people. 

The Foyle MLA said:

“The COVID-19 public health crisis has highlighted the extent at which food insecurity exists here in the north. Sinn Féin ministers have responded quickly and decisively with solutions to address this issue. 

“Today’s announcement is hugely significant and it follows on from Minister Deirdre Hargey’s decision to provide a payment to families of children who would typically avail of a free school meal.

“I look forward to working with the Education Authority’s Youth Service on the back of this announcement to ensure that vulnerable young people in the north have food security during this unprecedented crisis.”
