Fit and Fed offers fun physical activities and nutritious, healthy meals to some of society’s most vulnerable young people.
For too many young people, school holidays can be a time of hardship, hunger and isolation, as families in underserved communities struggle to fund the added food and childcare costs that the holidays bring. Fit and Fed exists to plug that gap.
Since its inception in 2016, the campaign has benefited 66,198 children/young people, with a whopping 528,582 free meals being provided in this time.
The Fit and Fed campaign continues to be a lifeline for low-income families, with activities taking place across England and Wales. But in a post-Covid world there are still thousands of young people experiencing holiday hunger and who are physically inactive and isolated.
Now more than ever it is vital that initiatives like Fit and Fed are there to give young people and their families the support they need, and to contribute to the nation’s recovery.
