Food parcels for children to restart
Posted on: Monday 26 October 2020
Bridgend County Borough Council will once again be providing food parcels for children eligible for free school meals over the half-term holiday.
This week all pupils eligible for free school meals will receive a food parcel with parcels being delivered to home addresses.
Then, from the week commencing November 2, only those free school meals pupils in Years 9-13 will receive a food parcel, as pupils in Year 7 and Year 8 along with pupils who attend infant, junior, primary and special schools will be back in school.
Anyone who has previously opted out of the provision will not receive a food parcel.
The weekly food parcel contains food items to provide both breakfast and lunch for a child for five days.
The half-term holiday parcels include a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables, pasta, sauces and tinned food.
