Helping families have healthy holidays


This week 13 of our Construction Services staff and staff from our repairs partner Wates were delighted to help with the Healthy Holidays Food Boxes, to helping families from across Barnsley who need it during the half term 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. This half term, the Healthy Holidays programme is offering a food box to children who receive free school meals and the box contains enough food to cover a child’s lunch for the duration of the holidays. The food isn’t for the entire family, or for each meal.

The programme is run in partnership with Good Food Barnsley and the Department for Education. You can find out more information on this amazing campaign on the Barnsley Council website.
