Liam joined us to tell us about his journey from Developer to CTO and the extraordinary #freeschoolmeals project they worked recently on at Silvership. It all began on the Friday before half term in October when it was announced the cut of free school meals over the holidays. After seeing lots of local businesses including local chippies offering children in need access to free meals on facebook, Liam and his team quickly recognised the need for a central directory to avoid these offerings being lost in the ether of the internet. Inspired by Marcus Rashford MBE, the ‘free school meals’ app was born.
