Feast of Fun 2019 Evaluation Report

You can read here about the difference that Feast of Fun makes to the lives of local children and families in Middlesbrough & Redcar and Cleveland.

There have been growing concerns about childhood hunger during school holidays in the UK. The Feast of Fun programme in Middlesbrough and in Redcar & Cleveland aims to alleviate some of the challenges faced by local families during the school holidays. This report documents the evaluation of the Feast of Fun programme delivered at 39 venues by 29 groups across Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland during the 2019 summer holidays.

The evaluation aimed to document the programme provided by Feast of Fun, to explore the challenges face by local families during the summer holidays, and the benefits of participation in the Feast of Fun programme. We asked every group to fill out an evaluation form as well as conducted impromptu interviews with 14 parents and grandparents, 24 children, and 7 volunteers.
