Holiday Free School Meals
Applications for Holiday Free School Meal vouchers for the winter holiday period are now open until the 6th December. Voucher emails will be sent out on 13th December.
This winter holiday period, Gloucestershire County Council are providing vouchers to eligible families who have signed up to their Holiday Free School Meals (FSM) scheme. These vouchers are provided by Gloucestershire County Council as part of their commitment to 'no child goes hungry'. The vouchers are funded through grant funding the Council have received and they are separate to that of term time free school meals.
The scheme is for children in reception to year 11 who receive benefits-related free school meals and attend a school in Gloucestershire. The Council are unable to consider college and sixth form students, as well as children who receive infant free school meals (available to all children from reception to year 2), as they are not eligible for this scheme.
Families who have signed up to the scheme will receive £15 per child, per week for the holiday period. The Council will be distributing 2 weeks of vouchers for the winter holiday period.
