Holiday Kitchen

Best practice by Accord, UK

Holiday Kitchen offers family wellbeing activities and healthy communal meals for pre- and primary aged children and their families during school holidays periods.

This positively responds to holiday risks which are most acute during the long summer breaks. Using a formula of learning, food and play for families when they need it most, Holiday Kitchen focuses support on three primary outcome areas:

  • improving access to and experiences of good holiday nutrition;
  • strengthening peer and family relationship;
  • engaging families in inclusive educational play and physical activities.

As the Holiday Kitchen programme requires parents/carers to participate in activities with their children, emphasis is placed on supporting positive parental involvement in learning, supporting family wellbeing and parent confidence to support children beyond the programme – including school and nursery engagement.
