Cricket Foundation

Crick-EAT

Working in partnership with Morrisons, we support children and families across Yorkshire by providing free physical activity and meals during school holidays.

Using the power of sport, we have teamed up with Morrisons to offer school holiday support to families and children living in West Yorkshire through our healthy holidays programme, Crick-EAT.

Areas of Leeds and Bradford are home to some of the most in need, with almost 22% of children in Bradford and 21% of children in Leeds living below the poverty line. The average family is only ever one month away from needing financial support, and after the past 18 months Crick-EAT is needed more than ever.

Aligning to Marcus Rashford’s recommendations to Government, a typical day at Crick-EAT includes two hours of cricket delivered by qualified cricket coaches, a free lunch provided by Morrisons, and free toothbrushes and toothpaste kindly provided by Palmolive.

Summer 2021

In 2021, we have worked with local schools and community organisations to deliver 12 Crick-EAT hubs across the summer holidays, delivering Monday to Friday for six weeks.
