Fit, Fed and Read

Hertfordshire’s Fit, Fed and Read programme, being rolled out across the school summer holidays, is aimed at countering the triple inequalities of holiday hunger, social isolation and physical inactivity amongst some of the county’s most disadvantaged young people.

Fit and Fed is a national StreetGames UK project and the Hertfordshire version is held at local fire stations – and includes sessions delivered by the Hertfordshire Library Service, and food provided by Herts Catering Ltd – the main supplier of school meals to the area’s schools.

The Hertfordshire Fit, Fed and Read programme is being held at the following Fire and Rescue Stations across Hertfordshire for a 4-week period throughout August 2018:

  • Watford Fire Station, 223-229 Lower High Street, Watford WD17 2AG

The days include FREE fun activities for children over the Summer holidays. With a focus on healthy eating, sport & physical activity and improved literacy for children in need aged 7-12 and includes a nutritious two course meal every day.
