Winter of Food and Fun

Find out about our school holiday activity and food programme for children aged four to 16 on benefits related free school meals, and how to sign up.

About the food and fun programme and who it’s for

We want to help local families who need additional support to get free, healthy food and fun activities. These are aimed at children and young people aged between four and 16 years.

Each programme will provide:

  • free, nutritious and tasty food
  • fun physical activity sessions
  • a wide range of other exciting activities to suit different ages and personalities
  • opportunities to learn more about food and nutrition for children and their families

“I found that the food was a great help. One less thing to think about.”

Southwark parent

“It’s nice to just sit down whilst having food and talking to each other because you get to bond together.”
