This Fund will provide grants up to £7,000 to support projects that address holiday hunger in Leeds, through promoting Healthy Holiday activities.
Supported by the Department for Education’s Holiday Activities and Food Programme Leeds Community Foundation is providing grants up to £7,000 to support projects that address holiday hunger in Leeds, through promoting Healthy Holiday activities. Community groups, charities, social enterprises or other charitable organisations from the third sector can apply.
Projects should provide food and engaging activities for school-aged young people over the summer holiday period, and should prioritise children who are eligible for free school meals.
In light of Covid-19 and social distancing measures, applicants are encouraged to consider what type of activity (online, offline, on-site) and food (hot grab bags, cold grab bags, food parcels/hampers) they are able to provide.
We understand that the situation is uncertain and will offer flexibility on delivery as circumstances continue to change. Activity must be delivered in the school summer holidays and groups should aim to ensure provision of at least 4 hours a day, 4 days a week, for at least 4 weeks of the summer holiday, either by delivering at that level themselves or by coordinating with others in their local area.
Deadline for applications is noon on 11/6/2020.
