For Summer 2023 we collaborated with University College Birmingham (UBC) School of Health, Sport and Food to recruit Food and Nutrition students to support the Hakuna Fruitata project.

The cohort of students was employed by StreetGames over the summer to deliver a series of nutrition based workshops to young people. The purpose of this was to enhance children’s experience of food based activities, do more practical based workshops in a fun and interactive way and share new ideas and approaches with provider staff teams they could deliver again within their sessions.

Over 80% of Hakuna Fruitata projects benefitted from an additional workshops as part of the Hakuna Fruitata programme and 97% felt this provided significant added value and enrichment to the summer programme with new and varied activities introduced.
