North Ayrshire Council’s holiday school meals service will return during the Christmas break.

The Council’s award-winning scheme provides primary school children with a warming and nutritious meal, available for collection at key locations across the council area.

To reach out to more children in the community and encourage uptake over the festive period, the Council will be offering holiday meals as a takeaway service. The meal will include a delicious packed lunch and hearty soup available to pick up and enjoy at home.
