Holiday activities and food programme

Registrations closed

Information about the next scheme will be coming soon.

We have secured funding from the Department for Education to provide a holiday activities and food (HAF) programme for children eligible for benefits-related free school meals.

These run during parts of the Easter, summer and Christmas holidays.


To be eligible for the HAF programme your child must be registered to receive benefits related free school meals.

If you think you might be eligible for benefit related free school meals, please visit our free school meals page.

Food and nutrition

Food plays a major role in the HAF programme. However, HAF is about more than just the food itself. It’s an opportunity to learn about food and nutrition, for young people to build an understanding of healthy food, to get stuck in and make a meal, or even grow their own food.
