Are your children entitled to a free school meal?
During these challenging times, many families have been concerned about how they will receive the financial support they need to feed their children at home without the free school meal entitlement during the partial closure of schools.
To help deliver this support, Edenred UK are working with the Department for Education (DfE) to deliver supermarket vouchers to those families, where schools are not able to make food available directly to families.
You will receive this support;
In the form of an eCode that you can redeem online from a selection of supermarket ‘eGift cards’ if the school has a working email address for you, or;
If you do not have an email address or access to the internet, your school will print off the voucher, or ‘eGift card’, and post it to your home address, or arrange a collection if easy and safe to do so.
Please contact the school if you believe you are entitled but have not been receiving vouchers.
As many schools remain closed under lockdown, Magic Breakfast are working to ensure that children from their 480 partner schools are still getting their Magic Breakfast.
Magic Breakfast normally provides healthy breakfasts to 48,400 schoolchildren across the country. Following the government's instruction that schools should close, or stay open at a reduced capacity for vulnerable children and those of key workers, they are working with urgency to ensure that Magic Breakfasts are still available to as many children as possible, whether they are at school or home.
To reach children whose schools are closed, Magic Breakfast has arranged deliveries of breakfast food to alternative distribution sites (nominated by schools), and has expanded its long-standing partnership with Amazon to deliver breakfast packs for children to their homes.
If you would like Magic Breakfast to deliver to your home, please contact they school office.
