That the Parliament commends the Takeaway Alliance group of Lanarkshire food retailers for their kindness and innovative efforts in helping feed hungry children for free; notes that this initiative is being offered by 12 food outlets, including Bon Appetite and Molly's Deli in Coatbridge; agrees with Karmen Shek of Bon Appetite, who acknowledges the sad reality of what is happening, and sends its thanks to "Auntie Trisha" at Route 66 Cafe in Motherwell for her action to help ensure that no child should go hungry or be embarrassed to ask for food.
