Who is eligible for HAF

Children eating watermelon

HAF is for those aged 4 to 16 who are in full-time education and receive benefits-related free school meals.

We offer children and young people free access to a programme of fun activities throughout the summer. This includes

  • sports
  • arts
  • music, and
  • personal development.

The children and young people receive a free healthy and tasty meal. They can also take part in interactive ways to learn more about healthy eating.

This film has been created to spread the word about the Government’s new £220million Holiday Activities and Food Programme to encourage parents to sign up this summer, with the support of Marcus Rashford, MBE. You can also read a letter from Marcus Rashford about the HAF programme.
