Message from GCC- Holiday Free School Meals Voucher

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

We would like to make you aware of the free school meal voucher scheme that Gloucestershire County Council is currently offering to families of Gloucestershire. 

This May half term, 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 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 £15 for each child who is eligible for FSM which will cover the May half term week. 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 to ensure we get all who are eligible, we are encouraging new parents to sign up as soon as they can.

For parents who have already signed up, if 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.
 
Voucher emails will be sent out between 25th and 26th May.  

For more information and to sign up if you haven't already, please visit our website: the Holiday Free School Meal vouchers page on<https://www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/holiday-school-meal-vouchers/?msclkid=192e0c5acf9b11eca8734a25a47c2046> our website.
For any queries please contact: childrensfund@gloucestershire.gov.uk

Kind regards,

Liza McCarthy
