Holiday Food and Fun

The London Borough of Croydon and Family Action received funding from the Department for Education (DfE) to co-ordinate free holiday food and activities programmes during the 2019 summer holidays.

The scheme, entitled Holiday Food and Fun, aimed to help children (particularly those on free school meals) and, where appropriate, their parents:

  • to eat more healthily over the summer holidays
  • to be more active over the summer holidays
  • to take part in engaging and enriching activities which support the development of resilience, character and wellbeing and other skills
  • to be safe and not to be socially isolated
  • to have greater knowledge of health and nutrition; and
  • to be more engaged with school and other local services and to have greater knowledge and awareness of local free holiday provision.
