Free School Meals

The government continues to support the families of children on Free School Meals to ensure that those children do not go hungry during this pandemic.

  • The Government has taken substantial action to make sure children and families do not go hungry by extending free school meals when schools closed, increasing welfare support by £9.3bn, and giving councils £63 million to provide emergency support to families for food and other essentials.
  • Everyone appreciates that it has been a challenging time for families, which is why the government has increased the safety net available to them with income protection schemes, mortgage holidays and support for renters.
