Options for Free School Meal families

In Cardiff, whilst schools are closed due to COVID-19 and during school holiday periods, parents and carers of children receiving Free School Meals are sent a downloadable voucher to the value of £19.50 per child, per week.

This can now be spent in seven different supermarkets including Aldi, Asda, Iceland, Morrisons, Tesco, Sainbury's and Waitrose and allows the flexibility for parents and carers to purchase their child's food from where they choose.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, our dedicated team have worked hard to make sure that more than 13,000 families with children eligible for free school meals, continue to receive vital meal provision.

This has included the development of new a BACS payment system, a new supermarket voucher scheme and at the beginning of lockdown the successful delivery of 45,000 packed lunches.
