Eat to Meet

22 May 2023

The May “Eat to Meet 2” Half Term programme starts on the 29th May 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 boxing, football, music, dance, cycling, cooking, discos, films, bowling, arts and crafts, drama, a make up course, trips out and much more!  Every day there will be a range of fabulous meals available with many schemes holding family events as well.

To find out where your nearest scheme is click on this link or go to and click on the May half term activities link. 

Lib Dem Councillor Dave Aizlewood said 'This is a great iniative for local school children across the City. It is an opportunity for children and young people to meet friends and eat nutritious food this Summer. If you have any queries that your Lib Dem team can help with then please get in touch.'

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.
