Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme

The Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme is funded by the Department for Education, providing free meals and activities for eligible benefits related free school meal children during the Easter, Summer and Christmas school holidays.

Hyndburn Leisure established in Summer 2021, our very own HAF Programme, ‘Fun with Food and Friends’ is now in it’s second year.

Working in partnership with a range of local, well known and trusted organisations across the whole of Hyndburn, Fun with Food and Friends provides a borough wide offer of free holiday provision for eligible pupils age 4 – 16 years, so pupils from reception all the way up to year 11.

Each holiday provision meets the HAF programmes aims and objectives and will provide at least 1 hour of physical activity, a nutritious meal (meeting school food standards), enrichment activities, family engagement, a reduction in social isolation and can provide support and guidance into other local services and organisations.

All of Fun with Food and Friends providers are required to have specific governance in place and on site at all times and follow strict policies and procedures that are checked on a regular basis.
