Families to receive help to buy food during school holidays
Families in Devon on low incomes, whose children receive free school meals, will get support this winter to help them buy food during the school holidays.
Once again, we’re providing holiday food vouchers for children and young people who are eligible for benefit-related free school meals.
If you have children at school and your financial circumstances have changed, your children may be eligible for free school meals.
You can find out by applying online through our Devon Citizen’s Portal.
The deadline for applications, in order to receive free school meal holiday vouchers for the Christmas school holiday, is Friday 16 December, so please apply as soon as possible.
Before the end of this term, we’ll be sending eligible families free school meal holiday vouchers to cover both the Christmas and February 2023 half-term holidays at the same time. That’s to give families more flexibility to prioritise and budget their winter food expenditure themselves.
Vouchers can be used at the following supermarkets: Aldi, Iceland, Tesco, Morrisons, Sainsburys, Asda, Waitrose and M&S Food.
