World's Healthiest Afternoon Tea (WHAT) is the new initiative from Sustain member Caroline Walker Trust (CWT),  launched on July 2020.

The CWT is raising funds for activities which improve the quality of holiday and after-school food provision for children living in poverty and low-income families. The Trust is also acutely aware that due to the recent closures of schools and the ongoing uncertainty of the Covid-19 situation, more children will be in need of adequate nutritious food during extended breaks.

The number of children in poverty is set to increase over the coming months as self-isolation and the uncertainty of employment continues.  It may be that schools reopen and periodically close again, leaving more children without adequate and/or nutritious food for lunch and afternoon tea.  The Caroline Walker Trust aims to improve holiday, term breaks and after school food provision for children living in poverty and from low-incomes.

CWT invites you to join them and host your own healthy afternoon tea, with family, friends and colleagues, at your work, local school, community centre, place of worship, park, club or café, to support activities that provide healthier food options for children during the holidays, extended breaks and after school.


All the monies raised will provide:

  • Activities which support and improve the quality of holiday food provision for children living in poverty,
  • After school projects supporting healthier food options for children from low income-based families,
  • Resources, information and expertise to enhance the quality of food and the improvement of the nation’s health.
