Lunch Bunch

Lunch Bunch gives children living in Islington, the chance to enjoy free fun activities alongside a free, healthy and nutritious lunch during the Easter holidays.

Lunch Bunch is delivered from venues around the borough and there’s something to suit children and young people of all ages. Food offered has been chosen with our dietitian for schools and so is healthy and nutritious. All sessions are drop-in, so there is no need to book.
