Fun and Food

Our Fun and Food programme runs during the Easter, Summer and Christmas school holidays across the county. All sessions are free and include breakfast/lunch/tea and snack. Children taking part in the programme can enjoy a wide range of sessions including things like: sport, dance, art and crafts, outdoor adventures, fun with animals, circus skills, seaside trips and much more.

If your child gets benefits-related free school meals, then you will receive a Fun and Food Ticket through your school, with details of how to find out what's on in your area and how to book your child a place.

If you haven't had a ticket and think you should have had one, please contact us.

Please note: All children from reception to year two get a free school meal through the Universal Infant Free School Meal scheme. The Fun and Food programme is aimed at children whose parents apply for free school meals based on their income and any benefits they receive. To find out more about benefit-related free school meals and if you could apply for them, visit Apply for free school meals.
