Dear parents and carers:

Re: Covid Summer Food Fund

Due to the unprecedented nature of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the government has recognised that families are facing increased pressure on household budgets over the coming months.

To support families, the government has launched the Covid Summer Food Fund which will enable children who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals to be supported over the summer holiday period.

On Monday 13th July, you will be texted a sixteen-digit numerical code for one voucher which is worth £90.

The code can be redeemed at: www.freeschoolmeals.co.uk and you can purchase food items with your voucher at the following supermarkets: Aldi, Asda, Company Shop Group, Iceland – including The Food Warehouse Stores, M&S, McColl’s, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose.

This is to pay for a daily lunchtime meal for your child during the summer holidays. It will cover the following period:
