Access to food and Free School Meals (FSM)
Leeds Food Network accepts referrals for families, single vulnerable adults or anyone who cannot access food during these difficult times. If you think you may be eligible; please contact us and we will do our best to support you and complete a referral.
Children eligible for free school meals:
If your child is eligible for free school meals due to your financial circumstances; we are continuing to provide a lunch for them during the period of closure. This is in the form of a grab bag / packed lunch and can be collected from school each week-day.
If your child is eligible you will have been contacted by the school office; if you initially declined the lunch for your child but would now like to accept this - please contact the school office.
If your circumstances have recently changed and you believe that your child may now be entitled to free school meals, please contact the school office for advice regarding the application process.
Please note, the packed lunch/grab bags being provided are for those children eligible for a free school meal due to their family's financial circumstances - this does not apply to all children in Reception and Key Stage 1 who usually receive a free meal in school through the 'Universal Infant Free School Meal' programme.
