VODA recently worked alongside North Tyneside Council to host two online meetings exploring plans for this year’s Holiday Activities and Food Programme. The HAF will ensure that children on free school meals in North Tyneside are offered free healthy meals and enriching activities over the Easter, summer and Christmas holidays.
The online events were the first step in providing local VCS organisations with an opportunity to help shape the summer offer – which will consist of a minimum delivery of four hours per day, four days per week, for four weeks (4-4-4).
Together we are keen to support high-quality provision across North Tyneside that makes the most of our sector’s assets. This could involve organisations working together to deliver a programme that offers healthy food, enriching activities, physical activities and nutritional education in a safe environment.
