HAF (Holiday Activities and Food Programme)

Holiday Activities and Food Programme

The Holiday Activity and Food programme (HAF) offers a range of free holiday activities and
clubs across East Suffolk.

The local programme is for children (5-16) who are eligible for benefits-related school
meals, vulnerable or who may have additional needs and would benefit from accessing the
programme. The programme also provides a meal for participants.

HAF runs over Easter, Summer and Christmas holidays and funding currently expires in
March 2025. To find out what programmes are running in your area, please go to booking
platform Eequ to view different activities available and to book. There is an interactive map
and a search function on Eequ. The booking process asks about eligibility i.e. Free School
Meals or other qualifying factors.

Programmes will also try and provide information about other things that may be helpful –
e.g. food pantries nearby.
