Holiday activities and food programme

Holiday activities and food programme - summer 2023

We are looking for schools, community groups and organisations to deliver the Department for Education funded holiday activities and food programme (HAF). This programme is for children in reception through to year 11 who are eligible for benefits related free school meals.

The programme will run through the summer school holidays. If you can provide a fun and enriching programme that positively engages with children and young people, and increases their physical activity and wellbeing, we would like to hear from you.

For HAF summer 2023 guidance and application forms, visit The Hub.

If you would like more information before completing the application, or you’re interested in hosting a programme at your school, please email

The deadline for applications is 11:59pm on Sunday 14 May 2023.
