Free School Meal Vouchers - Holidays
Re: Birmingham City Council to provide meal vouchers for half-term and Easter holidays
Birmingham City Council will be ensuring families eligible for free school meals will get the help they need over Easter and half-term breaks. These vouchers are for children whose parents are in receipt of certain benefits.
Downloading the vouchers
You will be sent an email which will have a cheque number and validation code to a £30 voucher for children reception to year 6. This will cover the full 2 weeks of the Easter holidays at £15 per week for each reception to year 6 child.
As the amount paid for free school meals for nursery age children is calculated at 40% of the full statutory age child amount, BCC Education Department have secured funding at £15 or £7.50 per week for each nursery child.
** Vouchers must be downloaded by Friday 4th June 2021 **
You are able to spend vouchers in local supermarkets including Sainsbury’s, Asda, Morrisons and many more participating stores. For more information on how to redeem vouchers see this link http://bit.ly/3bdQT9q.
If you have not done so already, please email firstname.lastname@example.org include your child’s full name, date of birth and class so we can update records with your current email address, should we issue further vouchers.
