About Healthy Holidays

Healthy Holidays is about supporting families who might need extra help to access food and activities to keep their children healthy through the school holidays. It's run in partnership with Good Food Barnsley and the Department for Education.

Children who receive free school meals as you/they receive a qualifying benefit are entitled to a free place at our Healthy Holidays clubs. The clubs run for a minimum of four hours per day, and every club provides each child with a delicious and nutritious meal.
