At Colchester United Football in the Community, we launhed our holiday hunger programme back in September 2018 and since then we have seen the evolution of our holiday hunger activities within the community across North Essex.

Our programmes during the school holiday periods and aims at engaging with children who may usually be in receipt of free school meals.

Food & Fun as it is formally known, provides physical activity, social and team building activities accompanied with healthy breakfasts and lunches provided by Colchester United Football Club.

We also deliver community workshops such as our; United Against Knife Crime project and our Unite Our Communities  programme to continue to educate young people on the ongoing issues within our local communities.
