FUEL - New holiday activities and food programme for children in Kingston

A new holiday programme offering a range of fun activities, food and opportunities to learn about healthy eating will launch this Easter for children in Kingston.

The programme will be delivered by Achieving for Children, who run the borough's children's services. It is funded by the Department for Education through its Holiday Activities and Food Programme for 2021 grant scheme.

The programme is called F.U.E.L: Feed Ur Everyday Lives, and will take place over the Easter, summer and Christmas holidays. It will offer a range of fun and enjoyable activities and food to children and young people aged 5 to 16 years who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM).

The aim is that the children who attend the programme will be supported:

  • To eat healthily and understand nutrition
  • To be more active 
  • To be safe and not to be socially isolated
  • To learn more about the different services Achieving for Children have available in the local area

Children will be able to take part in a range of activities from multi-sports to theatre workshops and cooking. A healthy lunch will be provided to everyone taking part. All activities are free for children and young people who receive Free School Meals (FSM).
