February Half-Term Free School Meal Support

Post by Wirral Council News » Fri Feb 12, 2021 8:00 pm

Plans are once again in place to ensure Wirral children who normally get free school meals do not go hungry during the February half term school holidays.

Last year Wirral Council secured more than £1.2 million under the government’s Covid Winter Grant Scheme from the Department for Work and Pensions. Some of this funding is being used towards providing breakfast and lunch over the school holidays.

This February half-term more than 7000 households who receive free school meals will be supported, with more than 8000 food parcels prepared.

The project is being co-ordinated by Neo Community in partnership with Wirral’s community food providers.

If you’re struggling to afford food visit www.wirralinfobank.com for a list of support that’s available, or call Wirral’s Coronavirus Helpline on 666 5050 or visit www.wirral.gov.uk/welfaresupport.
