Extra food parcels and holiday activities will be on offer to families in west Suffolk over the Easter school break.
West Suffolk Council has secured £50,000 of Department for Education funding for the Holiday Activities and Food programme and will be partnering with local organisations and providers.
The council will be working with primary and secondary schools to identify eligible children.
This programme will be building on previous successful holiday activities which has been carefully designed to provide the maximum benefit within the current restrictions.
In addition to the activities for children there will also be family sessions running with a variety of activities, cooking a nutritious meal, sports, as well as the opportunity to access advice and support.
