The Scottish Government has slashed the amount of cash to fund the holiday food programme in Glasgow by £1m.

Last year the summer holiday programme which provided food and activities for thousands of children was funded by the government with £1.66m.

But this year it has only given £662,000 leaving the council to find the money to maintain the level of service.

The council had been waiting for clarity from ministers on funding and, to ensure the programme went ahead this summer, had to allocate cash to dozens of projects across the city without any commitment from the government.

A paper presented to councillors this week confirms the cut in funding.

It shows that in 2022 the summer programme was funded by the Scottish Government with £1,665,024.
