Our Healthy Holidays project is led by our fantastic team of volunteers providing 1000’s of healthy meals directly to children.
The project has run in school holidays at five adventure playgrounds across Islington. Volunteers are trained up in food hygiene, safeguarding, play and playwork, and then deployed to work alongside playworkers to run fun, healthy cooking and eating sessions with children. The project provides healthy meals for hundreds of Islington children, promotes healthy eating to children living in poverty and their families, and provides services that can help with the very real of obesity that so many children are suffering from through access to the natural world and the outdoors. In 2016 alone, we successfully delivered 110+ healthy cooking sessions and provided 4400+ healthy meals.
