Supporting local children with free food and sports provision
Working with Nottingham City Council we have been able to provide local school pupils across the city with free food and sports activity sessions every day throughout the Easter holidays.
With around 3 million children in the UK are at risk of malnutrition during school holidays and alongside the coronavirus pandemic which has put enormous stress and pressure on households, the need to tackle holiday hunger has never been more crucial. Research suggests that children’s food insecurity is worryingly associated with poorer health, academic functioning, and social skills, as well as depression and anxiety, behavioural problems and obesity.
We were able to provide our own sports delivery as well as bring in external providers to provide a variety of activities such as dance, DJ workshops, rock climbing, boxing and more. The meals are freshly prepared and packed every day and include healthy sandwiches, snacks and drinks.
We’ve adhered to strict government guidelines to ensure we can help local children whilst keeping participants and staff safe.
