Covid Summer Food Fund

Covid Summer Food Fund

Families will face increased pressure on household budgets over the coming months. That is why the DfE are launching a Covid Summer Food Fund which will enable children who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals to be supported over the summer holiday period.

The payments for the Covid Summer Food Fund will be met centrally by DfE and is in addition to the free school meals national voucher scheme. It is designed to support children who usually receive benefits-related free school meals. The scheme will offer a £90 voucher for the standard school summer holiday. If your school’s summer holiday lasts 7 full weeks (rather than 6), you can increase the voucher amount per child from £90 to £105.

Before ordering vouchers:

  • If you have not yet activated your Edenred account, you will need to do so
  • Check which pupils are eligible and in receipt of benefits-related free school meals
  • Check that you have included orders for all eligible children and that you have entered correct email addresses for their parents or carers
  • You must order the voucher at least one week before your school term ends

You must ensure that there is no duplication or overlap between Covid Summer Food Fund vouchers and any vouchers that you have ordered to cover free school meals during the summer term.

For more information on the scheme please see the link below and order your vouchers today!
