Ready Steady Worcestershire
Worcestershire Children First have set up a webpage that provides information about support available to families over the school holidays. There is a link to an interactive map where you can find organisations in your local area that can provide you with either food items to cook a meal at home or prepared meals for your child during the school holiday period.
