Children in Scotland food project offers 20,000 places to children and families this summer
2 Jul 2018
From 2 July 2018, children across Scotland will be participating in summer clubs run as part of our award-winning Food, Families, Futures (FFF) partnership programme.
Now in its third year, FFF offers children and families the opportunity enjoy meals and fun activities in schools over the summer.
This summer there will be a total of 20,300 places available during July and August – up from 4,000 places in the summer of 2017.
The programme has also expanded from two local authority areas in 2017 (Glasgow and West Dunbartonshire) to four, and this year will cover schools in Glasgow, West Dunbartonshire, Perth and Kinross and East Lothian.
Jackie Brock, Chief Executive of Children in Scotland said:
“We are incredibly proud to see the expansion of the Food, Families, Futures project. We know the summer holidays can be a time of pressure for many families, but FFF highlights the strength in our communities and our ability to collaborate, offer support and solve problems.”
FFF is a partnership programme between food distribution Brakes’ Meals & More programme, Children in Scotland, local authorities and local organisations and community groups in participating authorities.
The summer clubs launch today (2 July 2018) and run for between 5 and 25 days.
