Prince Harry surprised a group of children at the Streatham Youth and Community Trust with a nutritious meal Tuesday.
According to a recent survey by the Food Standards Agency, one in four low-income U.K. households struggle to eat healthily or regularly.
Food insecurity is estimated to affect three million of the nation’s young people on a regular basis.
It’s exacerbated on holidays, because the students are at home for prolonged periods of time. Children in the U.K. are currently in the middle of their spring half-term holiday, which runs from February 15 to 25.
The campaign served a total of 146,260 meals in 2018, according to Kensington Palace.

Harry also met with volunteers from the Streatham Youth and Community Trust, who organized trampoline and jiu-jitsu sessions for children from the neighbourhood.
According to Harper’s Bazaar, Markle’s longtime friend and Canadian Jessica Mulroney is planning the baby shower, reportedly scheduled for Tuesday night. On Saturday, the pair was spotted at Ladurée in SoHo enjoying macarons and tea.
Harry and Markle will travel to Morocco on Saturday for three days at the request of the Queen’s government, the Palace said in a release.
