Help us #ActiveAte school holidays this summer

11 July 2018

Summer should be a time of fun and excitement for children, but for many this is not the case.

In the video above FareShare CEO Lindsay Boswell explains our new campaign #ActiveAte supporting holiday projects for children this summer.

FareShare’s #ActiveAte programme is supplying food to over 200 holiday projects this summer, providing nutritious meals and snacks for approximately 20,000 children across the UK. The projects we are supporting offer food and fun activities to ensure that children can enjoy their summer holidays on a full stomach and return to school happy and healthy.

The campaign was featured in leading press outlets like The Grocer and the Big Issue, was shared by the Sustain network and by many supporters on social media including MPs Emma Lewell-Buck and Sharon Hodgson.

Will you help us #ActiveAte school holidays this summer?



“Summer is meant to be a time of joy and play if you are a kid, but for more than 3 million children this year that is not going to be the case. Help us fund this work so that this summer can be a real fun time for kids.”

FareShare Chief Executive, Lindsay Boswell
