In 2017 the issue of 'holiday hunger' emerged as a significant and growing issue throughout the UK. We decided to take action to help tackle the issue in Huddersfield, so we developed a project offering food and fun activities for children and their families during the school holidays.
Holiday hunger refers to a problem faced by many; families struggling with finances rely on their children’s schools to provide them with a free or low-cost lunchtime meal, and in many cases breakfast too. During the school holidays, these children are at risk of going unfed or underfed, and only having access to unhealthy foods.
If you're planning to run a project of your own similar to Kids Kitchen Club, we're happy to share our resources with you, answer questions, and offer tips.
