Some top restaurants and supermarkets are offering free food for children this summer school holiday.
The rising cost of living has meant families are needing to stretch their money further than ever in 2022, and plenty of companies are looking to help out and ensure everyone can still enjoy a meal out while kids aren’t in schools.
The summer break this year runs between July 25 and September 5.
