School Holiday Food Vouchers

If your children receive means tested Free School Meals you need to register with First Days to receive a voucher for £15 per eligible child, per week of the holidays, before each school holiday starts. Every child who qualifies, who lives in Wokingham Borough, regardless of where they go to school, will be eligible for vouchers. 

Having asked your opinion on the best way to support you with affording food in the holidays, we will be giving Edenred food vouchers, which you can redeem online. You told us that this is the best way to support you. 

Remember, if you live in Wokingham and you need extra support with the cost of food, you can ask us to refer you to Wokingham Foodbank (just email referrals@firstdays.net and one of the Family Support Team will be in touch), you can go to SHARE (check out their FB page for opening times) or you can go to Woodley Lunch Bunch or The Grub Club. 

The School Holiday Vouchers form part of the Household Support Fund, which is funding that is given to Wokingham Borough Council from the government. The council have decided to continue to providing the Free School Meal Vouchers that the government used to give out. There is an additional fund, given out by Citizens Advice, for people who don't qualify for School Holiday Food Vouchers. 

What you need to do:

2. We will check your details against the central database to ensure you qualify, if we have any questions we will be in touch with you.
