Our transition to become Holbeck Together last year represents our commitment to welcoming all members of our community, which includes families and young people.
‘Kids Together’ is for all things families and children in the Holbeck community – keep an eye on this page for activities, events and resources that you, your children or someone you know might be interested in.
As we progress on our journey as Holbeck Together, we welcome your input and feedback more than ever. If you have any ideas or suggestions for how we can better help to support families and younger people within our community to live healthy and happy lives, please give us a call on 0113 245 5553 or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A series of grants from Leeds Community Foundation’s Healthy Holidays programme helped us to support families in the Holbeck area to stay well and create healthy and delicious meals during the holidays in 2020. This support was more important than ever due to the ongoing challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic, so we’re really pleased we were able to help families throughout the school holidays.
Children, along with their parents, were able to take part in a series of camp activities throughout the holidays including crafts, sports, and the chance to cook a nutritious meal.
Families also received weekly food packs, which included enough food for two days of breakfast and lunch. They also received a variety of healthy recipes each week, highlighting new ideas for breakfast, lunch, healthy snacks and main meals, and once a week they got ingredients and a recipe card to make a family evening meal, making cooking fun & straightforward.
We couldn’t have done this without the generosity of our partners, FareShare and Rethink Food, who supplied us with all the fresh ingredients, fruits and vegetables our families need to make their meals. You can read more about our Summer 2020 activities here.
