FixOurFood has recently been supporting The Food Foundation in their efforts to encourage children to sign up to the Holiday Activities and Food Programme (HAF), a £220 million government funded initiative for children across England.
Both Manchester United footballer Marcus Rashford and Henry Dimbleby, author of the National Food Strategy, are supporters of this valuable programme targeted at the children most affected by the pandemic. It offers children a safe environment this summer to learn, socialise and importantly eat well. Parents across the country have been encouraged to seek out local arrangements for their children through their council websites.
FixOurFood is proud to work with The Food Foundation to evaluate the the benefits of the programme for young people and their families, and also to support the development of a promotional video featuring Marcus Rashford encouraging children to sign up to the holiday programme.
