More veg out of school hours

Health and hospitals

Improve access to veg for children enrolled in after school or holiday activities.

Free school meals are a critical safety net. But for 170 days a year those children who are entitled to free school meals cannot access their free school meal provision. A large number of community based organisations are responding to this challenge through offering holiday provision for children often including a food offer. Local authorities have a role to play in ensuring that these programmes reach those who need them most, and that the provision meets minimum standards. Holiday provision provides huge opportunities for connecting children with how food is grown, trying new vegetables, developing cooking skills and supporting healthy eating practices.
