Holiday activities and food programme

About the programme

Over the Christmas break, Hackney Council has teamed up with a number of schools and community services to offer a range of food support and activities as part of the government funded Holiday and Activities Food Programme (HAF). The scheme is free for those in receipt of free school meals, with some venues also offering paid-for schemes for pupils not on free school meals.

There will be food provision (meals provided), sports activities, arts and drama, mentoring, healthy eating and nutrition tutorials set out across various locations in the borough. Families will also receive a hamper of food to bring home.

Watch our video that shows what happened at Easter in some Hackney schools and includes Marcus Rashford’s support.

Children and young people with SEND or support needs

Food provision and activities are inclusive of all children and young people, including those who may have a disability or who have Special Educational Needs. However, some activities may not be suitable for some children. Please discuss any dietary restrictions and needs before booking.
