Q. Do you get free school meals and what difference do they make?
Free school meals are a huge help for us. In particular the extended provision over the holidays has been very helpful. Especially now they’ve settled on a voucher system. I can get so much more out of the £15 a week than I was getting in food parcels, and I can buy exactly what my children will eat. This summer (for my one school aged child) we are getting £75 from the city council, and an extra £25 from our parish council. It will really help us over the holidays.
