Free school meals - COVID-19 update

Free school meals COVID-19

Children who receive free school meals will be able to continue to access meals during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Eligible children who are attending school will continue to receive a meal. If the child is at home, a packed lunch, weekly food hamper or food voucher will be provided depending on the school’s arrangements.

Vouchers are worth £15 per week per child (including during the school holidays) which parents will receive through their school and can be redeemed online or at participating supermarkets. The schools will be in contact with families who are eligible for this scheme. If you think your family meets the criteria, please speak to your child's school.
