StreetGames and its partners were again at the heart of an innovative new initiative this past half-term, when the #FitandFed programme added a fresh provision to its plate!

Having previously struggled to provide hot food as part of its offer, long-time StreetGames network member Burgess Sports became the first such project to utilise off-site food delivery!

Working in collaboration with the Akshaya Patra Foundation, an Indian non-profit organisation that specialises in providing school lunches to disadvantaged young people, the partnership represents a nutritious and cost effective solution to otherwise lacking food-prep facilities – costing out at just £2 per child, per meal. All food is freshly cooked, nutritionally balanced, packed with vegetable goodness, and delivered hot to the holiday club's door. Menu options are varied, ranging from children's favourites like pasta bakes to flavoursome curries, with an emphasis on introducing new vegetables into the young people's diets.

With the capacity to provide many more meals, StreetGames and Akshaya Patra are now inviting network projects to register their interest and become involved today:

"TAPF UK is very excited to be serving hot and healthy food to tackle holiday hunger in London. We fed 70 children daily this February Half term week at Burgess Sports holiday club. I was delighted to see the children enjoying the healthy meals and coming back for seconds. A big thanks to Burgess Sport and Fit and Fed for the opportunity. This is only the start in our fight against holiday hunger and malnutrition, please get in touch if you would like to join hands. TAPF is a not for profit organisation working towards ending hunger by providing hot nutritious food for children and people in need. Register now for summer holiday food provision for £2/meal".
