In this week’s episode, James has a round table discussion with the HAF Alliance, an organisation that came together to offer best-practice methods for running a holiday and food program. Northumbria University’s Professor Greta Defeyter; founder and former CEO of Street Games Jane Ashworth OBE; and ukactive’s Jade Harris, Head of Children, Young People, and Families, join James on The Drive Phase podcast to talk holiday hunger, holiday activities and poverty amongst children and their families.
The panel will be exploring the program, the research gathered to make it a reality, and their future aspirations to make this program, a permanent fixture in the UK.
