Holiday Activities and Food Programme

Information for families

The Department for Education (DfE) is providing funding to local authorities to coordinate a programme that provides healthy food and enriching activities to school aged children

  • who are eligible for free school meals
  • during the major school holidays (Easter, Christmas and summer).

The sessions include a healthy meal, advice to families on how to source, prepare and cook nutritious food and a variety of exciting activities and sports.

It will be optional for eligible children to attend this provision. If not eligible, children can pay to attend and join in the fun.
