Free School Meal Payments Continue13/01/21
Free school meal payments are being made to qualifying Dundee families in the new lockdown.
Around 6,000 children will be covered by the scheme, which is paying £27 per qualifying child for the period covering 7 - 22 January. Payments will go into bank accounts on Friday (Jan 15).
Eligibility is for nursery children included on a housing benefit/council tax reduction claim and pupils in P1-3 who receive the school clothing grant. Payments will be made for pupils from P4 to S6 based on free school meal entitlement.
Children and families service convener Councillor Stewart Hunter said: “I am pleased that this scheme is continuing, as I know this made a big difference to families across our city.
“We know the impact that these payments have made to many families, with several parents getting in touch with us to share their appreciation of this valuable support while schools are closed to most pupils.”
