Providing food and support to families struggling during the school holidays.
There are approximately 170 non-school days a year where children receiving Free School Meals (FSM) cannot access this food. Having children at home means having to find more food, childcare and ways to entertain children, all of which costs money. This puts pressure on household budgets making it even harder to ensure that children and families are eating well.
Our Holiday Meals project provides training and guidelines for foodbanks within our network, equipping them to run Holiday Meal clubs, providing food, fun activities and support to families that are struggling during the school holidays.
