A tandoori restaurant is offering free meals to children this half term to ensure they do not go hungry.
Ali Anwar and his Downham Tandoori team in Downham Market decided to help those struggling in the local community following the government’s decision not to fund free school meals during half-term.
In a Facebook post, the Indian restaurant added the offer was “nothing to do with politics” but that they want to do what they can to help families struggling to feed their children.
It said: “We don’t want to see any children from our community go hungry this half term. So we are offering free lunch time meals to anyone who needs it.
“No questions and no judgements will be taken.
