Free school meal vouchers for eligible families this half term

by Jonathan Kearney

Knowsley children who are eligible for means-tested free school meals will be able to access free school meal vouchers during the October Half Term.

Children in Knowsley will also be able to access free activities and a healthy meal during the school holidays as part of a holiday activity scheme supported by One Knowsley. More details will soon be available on the One Knowsley website.

Free school meal vouchers will be accessible as part of the Government’s Household Support Fund.

The fund will support households in the most need with food, energy and water costs and is available until 31 March 2022.

Further details will be available soon on the Knowsley Council website.

Cllr Shelley Powell, Cabinet Member for Communities and Neighbourhoods, said: “Families who may otherwise have struggled won’t have to worry about going without during the October Half Term. What’s more there will be free activities children in Knowsley can access to keep them active and engaged during the school break. Beyond this, support will be available to help households most in need with essential costs over the course of the winter months.”

More details about the October Half Term activities, including how to book a place, will be available soon on the One Knowsley website.
