Access to Food Initiative

As with previous years, Sefton CVS are working in partnership with Sefton Council to coordinate a network of community venues and local organisations to offer children, young people and families access to food during the school holidays – especially those who would normally be in receipt of free school meals during term time.


The Access To Food initiative is available to all regardless of income throughout the school holidays, and we hope this offer will complement the service being provided by Sefton Council’s Family Wellbeing Centres in the South, Central and North localities.
