Free School Meals and Foodbank

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are looking to support our families whose children access Free School Meals (FSM).  The Government has offered FSM children’s families, vouchers that may be used at local supermarkets.  We will be sending out a paper voucher to all families in receipt of FSM to the sum of £25.00.  This is to assist in covering meal costs over the next two weeks of planned school closure. This voucher may be exchanged for food produce at Morrison’s supermarket.

Some families may have accessed the Caterham Food Bank in the past; the Food Bank can supply food once a week for families, i.e. one voucher per family per week.  

Please can you let Mrs Pearson know by 12.30pm on Monday 23rd March 2020 if you grant your permission, to share with the Food Bank, your surname and postcode such that you may access this provision: D.Pearson@hillcroftschool.org

The Food Bank will document this information securely as a reference for whom they can supply food to.  You would simply need to bring ID to the foodbank centre to be able to access food.
