Holiday Activities with Food Programme (HAF) Member Information and Resources

BACE Holidays is a project delivered in partnership with Barnet Council and funded by the Department for Education HAF (Holiday Activity & Food) programme to offer children and young people who currently receive free school meals access to enriching activities and a healthy lunch over the holidays.













As a result of this programme children who attend these events will:

  • Eat more healthily over the school holidays

  • Be more active during the school holidays

  • Take part in engaging and enriching activities which support the development of resilience, character and wellbeing along with their wider educational attainment

  • Be safe and not to be socially isolated

  • Have a greater knowledge of health and nutrition

  • Be more engaged with school and other local services


We also want to ensure that the families who participate in this programme: 

  • Develop their understanding of nutrition and food budgeting

  • Are signposted towards other information and support e.g. health

  • Employment and education
