Providing food, fun and friendship

for families across Harlow and the surrounding area during school holidays.

About Us

The Harlow Holiday Lunch Clubs Network is an initiative of Harlow Churches working together with a group of voluntary sector organisations, supported by local authority bodies and businesses, all working together to provide great fun and food for families during school holiday periods. Throughout the COVID19 outbreak, we are also providing support direct to families' homes through out 'Box of Hope' scheme.


Autumn 2020

Harlow Churches are delighted to be working with Changing Lives Harlow and the Red Balloon Foundation to provide lunch clubs through the October Half Term with support from TLG and Active Essex.

Due to current social distancing guidelines, numbers attending all sessions will be strictly limited. All participants will receive lunch for their whole family (including anyone left at at home as only one adult per family can attend) as well as free goody bag of children's activities. Where possible, we will also offer some fun physical activities for children to take part in.

Advance booking is essential as families who have not registered will be unable to take part. Follow the links below to register your family for the specific lunch club you wish to attend, ensuring that you apply for the club geographically closest to where you live wherever possible.
