Q. Do your children normally receive means-tested Free School Meals?
Q. Have you received any support with food for your children since schools have been closed? And if you have, what was the support like?
We received vouchers for supermarkets, which could only be used instore. As a single parent using these proved difficult without having to take my children out with me. Also I only received them every 3 weeks so had to find the costs to cover food other times. Also they offered breakfast packs but a pack of 6 bagels and a box of Rice Crispies was just not sufficient enough for 3 weeks.
