Free School Meals Vouchers

Last month, the government announced their intention to continue supporting families in receipt of benefits-related free school meals through the Covid Summer Food Fund.

All eligible children will be given supermarket vouchers to the value of £90. These will be sent to you in three instalments on 17 July, 31 July and 14 August.

Parents who have been redeeming their own e-Codes via Edenred will continue to receive their voucher this way. Those parents who have been receiving their voucher via the school will be sent their vouchers in the post on the above dates.

E-Codes will expire after one month so it is important that they are redeemed and spent straight away.  These vouchers are provided for the benefit of your child and must be used for food, and must not be redeemed for any age-restricted items, such as alcohol, cigarettes or lottery tickets.

For any problems exchanging e-Codes for vouchers please email freeschoolmealsparentscarers@edenred.com

For any problems redeeming the supermarket voucher, please contact the supermarket directly either in store or via the contact phone number/email address provided on the voucher.

Please note that we are not able to offer support with this during the summer holidays.

 

Free School Meals - New Applications

If your circumstances have recently changed and you think you may be eligible for free school meals, please email us at: finance@riverside.hereford.sch.uk including your child's name and date of birth, your surname, date of birth and national insurance number.  

We can then apply to Herefordshire Council on your behalf.
