Raising £25,000 to provide 10,000 meals for students facing hardship

Welcome to Kent Giving Week 2023.

A recent survey of UK students found a monthly shortfall of £439 between the average student’s maintenance loan and living costs. 10% of students recorded having used a food bank in the last academic year and 37% said the cost of living crisis might prevent them from continuing their studies altogether.

It's against this backdrop that Kent Giving Week 2023 will be supporting our student community by raising £25,000 to provide 10,000 meals for individuals who need them most. With a vibrant and varied schedule of events, there are plenty of ways to get involved - from '5k Your Way', music and comedy events, net-walking breakfasts to cooking shows and even a recipe book! 

Can you provide a hot meal for a student in need?
