Free school meals, holiday activity and food programme
If you receive certain benefits, your child should get free school meals and free activities and food during the school holidays.
To secure your child’s free school meals and free activities and food during the school holidays, you have to apply via your local council.
Also, children in reception, year 1 and year 2 in a government-funded school should be able to get free school meals. For more information, visit the government’s free school meals page.
