COVID Summer Food Fund
The Department for Education is providing a COVID Summer Food Fund voucher for those pupils eligible through ‘Means tested Free School Meals’ eligibility. For your family to receive this voucher, the Department for Education has asked all schools to use the EdenRed eCode voucher scheme, to distribute the COVID Summer Food Fund eCode voucher to families. This system uses emails of parents/guardians to distribute the eCode vouchers. We will contact those families who have received their Partial School Closure Free School Meal vouchers via post separately to discuss how they can access their eCode vouchers. ECode Vouchers should be released by EdenRed from the 12th July onwards. The eCode voucher will be for £105. This covers the 7 weeks that school is closed for Summer. The Department for Education has made it very clear in its guidance that the COVID Summer Food Fund ‘must be used for food’.
Please continue to check your email accounts from the 12th July including your Spam to ensure you receive the voucher.
Please follow the link to show you how to activate your eCode voucher to spend at the supermarket you select.
