Holiday Free School Meal Voucher Scheme

Dear Parent/carer,

A message from Gloucestershire County Council:

We would like to make you aware of some of the schemes that Gloucestershire County Council is currently offering to families of Gloucestershire. 

Holiday Free School Meal Voucher Scheme

This Spring break, Gloucestershire County Council is providing vouchers to parents who have signed up to our Holiday Free School Meals (FSM) scheme. These vouchers are provided by Gloucestershire County Council as part of its commitment to ‘no child goes hungry’. The vouchers are funded through COVID-19 grant funding we have received and is separate to that of the term time free school meals.

Parents who have signed up to the scheme will receive a voucher for £30 for each child who is eligible for FSM which will cover both the two weeks of the Spring holiday. The scheme is eligible for children aged 4-16 years old. Unfortunately, we are unable to consider college and sixth form students.

Parents who have signed up previously do not need to re-register, they have already been included, but we are encouraging new parents to sign up as soon as they can.

For parents who have already signed upif more of their children have become entitled to free school meals since they applied, please ask them to contact us so we can update their amount, as this not an automatic process.

For more information and to sign up if you haven't already please visit Gloucestershire County Council website: the Holiday School Meal vouchers page on our website. 

For any queries please contact:

Kind regards


Liza McCarthy
