Terms and Conditions – Free School Meal National Voucher Scheme.

In response to COVID-19 we have worked in partnership with National Voucher Scheme and Edenred UK to give both members and non-members in the local community who need the most help at this time, access to great quality surplus products, helping to spread family budgets further.
School meal vouchers being provided by the National Voucher Scheme are accessible from the school your children attend.  You can find the full government advice, here.

The scheme currently covers schools across England and is through the department of education. The governments chosen provider Edenred, should have contacted you by email, letting you know the details of the National Voucher Scheme for free school meals. They have been sending emails since 31st March to the email address which The Department of Education holds for your school/ If you have not had an email, be sure to look in your junk folder. If it’s not there, see below some useful resources:
