Children's weekly food parcels

Food parcels for pupils eligible for free school meals will be delivered to each household every week.

The weekly food parcel contains enough food items to provide both breakfast and lunch for a child for five days. For pupils with special dietary requirements, a five-day frozen meal option will be delivered.

The food parcels have replaced the packed lunch provision that was previously in place.

Delivery schedule and arrangements

Some parcels will be delivered on Tuesday, while others will arrive on Wednesday and Thursday. We will be delivering 5,000 food parcels each week.

We ask that parents are available to answer the door to collect the delivery as no deliveries will be left unattended. However, delivery staff will maintain social distancing procedures.

All pupils registered as eligible for free school meals will automatically be delivered a food parcel. There is no need to contact us.

You can choose to opt-out of this arrangement by contacting your child's school. 

For some areas, deliveries may extend over two days and may be subject to change.
