Our ‘Fun & Food’ Fund aims to ensure that as many children and young people as possible have access to food during school holidays, alongside enriching activities, in particular considering those children and young people who would normally receive a free school meal during Term Time.
This week we are launching the next phase of our ‘Fun & Food’ programme which aims to support activities for children and young people during the Easter 2022 school holidays, and provides an opportunity for groups, schools, early years settings and community organisations in the Derwent Valley area to apply for a small grant to help them deliver projects locally during this time.
We are now accepting small grant applications for a minimum request of £500. Applicants are encouraged to provide a healthy meal (breakfast, lunch or tea) as part of the activity.
Application forms and guidance notes can be requested from the Derwent Valley Partnership Team directly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
or telephoning: 07818 310365.
Please note that all fully completed applications and supporting documents must be received by 12 noon on Wednesday 2nd March 2022.
The Fun & Food Easter 2022 programme will also been publicised on our Facebook page and Derwent Valley Life website but please feel free to share this information via your own networks as appropriate, we would like as many children and young people in our area as possible to benefit from the funds we have available.
