Event description

Description

For many families much needed free school meals are missed during the schools holidays, and in the last few months programmes tackling holiday hunger have secured funding from the Department of Education including our neighbouring local authority Birmingham.

Solihull MBC, Public Health, are to bring together key organisations across North Solihull to:

  • audit the current provision during the school holidays of affordable nutritious healthy food opportunities and fun physical activities

  • facilitate a coordinated approach in raising the awareness of existing provision

  • research “holiday hungry” programmes throughout the UK and any local learning

  • make evidence base recommendations

  • facilitate the development of a consortium to scale up holiday hunger provision

Public Health will be contacting key organisations in June 2019 to understand the current provision for Summer 2019. At this event we will present our findings and agree next steps (this may include coordinating our approaches in the future and/or securing additional funding as a consortium across North Solihull for provision where there are gaps).
