The HAF programme in Warwickshire (Holiday activities and food programme) has been set up for school aged children in full time education who receive benefits related free school meals. It is available for children from reception to Year 11 (inclusive). By making use of the programme, families on lower incomes are able to give their young people access to a healthy meal over the Christmas, Easter and Summer school holidays.
Benefits related free school meals are available to pupils if their parents are in receipt of one of the qualifying benefits, and have the claim verified by Warwickshire County Council (WCC).
In Warwickshire, the HAF programme is working with local activity providers to offer eligible families a holiday programme that has a variety of fun, engaging and enriching activities. This includes activities such as dance, multi sports clubs, drama, arts and crafts, animal care and much more.
