London Lions rookie Jonathan Komagum previously discussed the role free school meals played in his life as a youngster growing up in London:
“I grew up and lived in a place called Ferrier Estate which was in Kidbrooke and I attended Holy Family Primary School. I received free school meals when I was there because my father left when I was younger and so I was being raised by my mum and there were three other siblings so four children in total. Of course, my mum had four children to take care of and as a result of our circumstances we had free school meals.”
The 6’9” center, who recently represented Uganda, at the 2022 FIBA World Cup Qualifiers, also lamented the importance of the Lions' partnership with City Harvest:
“There is a lot of child poverty that is happening in England right now – caused by the cost of living crisis, prices going up and people not making enough money to allow them to get by. The crisis is very real and I feel that the London Lions partnership with City Harvest is a great thing as there are a lot of families in need for just the little things. When it comes to food, clothes, shelter, a lot families are finding it very tough, especially in London and hopefully this partnership will help that improve."
