May 2024 ‘Eat to Meet’ Half Term Programme

Duration: 28 – 31 May 2024.

The May Half Term Eat to Meet programme starts soon and there are lots of great activities happening over the school holidays. Children and young people, from reception to age 16, who are eligible for benefits related free school meals, will be able to access hundreds of activities throughout the half term holidays including specific provision available for children with SEND or additional needs, at no cost.

There’s a great range of activities across the city including baseball, athletics, tri golf, bubble football, nerf wars, mindfulness, swimming, football, music, dance, cycling, gymnastics, theatre tech, cooking, discos, podcasting, handball, orienteering, arts and crafts, drama, basketball, trips out and nature walks! A meal will be provided for every child attending.

When you have chosen the activity/scheme you will need to contact that organisation to book a place. Each organisation will have either a telephone number, email address or online booking system. If your child has any additional needs or dietary requirements then please discuss this with the organisation when you book.

There is no central booking system so please read the details of the programmes on the website and contact the providers directly.
