Food, drinks and parties

Provision of snacks, meals or drinks

It is not recommended to permit food and drink to be consumed in the setting used, unless essential for medical reasons.  If providers permit use of kitchen areas, service users staff and volunteers should bring their own cups/cutlery. Surfaces in kitchen areas should be cleaned and disinfected in between each use. Sharing of food or drink should not take place.

Those who are providing services within breakfast clubs may find the catering section of Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance on preparing for the start of the new school term in August 2020 helpful in their considerations.

Parties

It is recommended that parties do not take place inside premises where organised activities for children and young people can be carried out, at this time.
