Food and Fun is the brand identity of the Welsh Government School Holiday Enrichment Programme (SHEP), a school-based education programme that provides food and nutrition education, physical activity, enrichment sessions and healthy meals to children in areas of social deprivation during the school summer holidays. The Welsh Government will be undertaking a full review of the programme in 2022 and are seeking to recruit an Interim National Coordinator to oversee programme delivery during the period of the review.
