About children’s cafeteria (From Wikipedia)
As of January 2021, there are approximately 2,300 children's cafeteria across Japan. This is a social activity that provides free or cheap nutritious meals and gatherings for children and their families or local people. Since 2010, as it has been repeatedly reported on TV and other mass media, the movement has become active, and many similar campaigns have been carried out across Japan. As an effective means to eliminate loneliness and strengthen the connection between children and adults and the region, this movement is increasing rapidly.
