A TEAM that cooked up a way to help families get healthy meals during the summer break is urging more families to reach out over the October half term.

The Central Area Team, which covers the Central, Dodworth, Kingstone, Stairfoot and Worsbrough wards has relaunched a successful initiative to support families during the school holidays.

The team, who supported more than 100 families in the area during the pandemic, are hoping that more families reach out for support with the scheme.

Households are provided with fresh ingredients, sourced locally, and recipe cards throughout each week to ensure they can make ‘healthy versions of family classics’.

Coun Wayne Johnson, who helped with the initiative, encourages any family to get additional support if needed.

He told We Are Barnsley: “We’re hoping to help more than 200 people this time around and expand the net further.

“If you’ve had difficulty during this tough time, please get in touch with us. This scheme is here to support families who may just need that extra boost.”
