Free holiday lunches

We provide free lunches and activities for families with nursery or school-aged children in the school holidays, at various locations around Cambridge.

The meals are available for families who normally receive free school meals, or who find the added expense of food in school holidays challenging to manage.

This summer we provided lunches at more locations than ever – and we’re back with seven more this October half term.
