Grocery Vouchers for School Holidays

The Government gives money to local councils to support households who would otherwise struggle with food bills, and to organise holiday & food programmes for school aged (4 - 16 year old) free-school-meals registered children.

For the past few years Lancashire County Council have been able to use some of this funding to provide £15 per-week grocery vouchers to the families of pupils from  Reception - Year 11 during school holidays. 

Lancashire County Council have asked schools to order & administer the vouchers through EdenRed. Families will automatically receive the voucher codes by email and Lancashire County Council will be responsible for paying the invoices.
Please note that the school has no discretion over the eligibility for, or value of, the vouchers.

Lancashire County Council have confirmed that approval has been granted for schools to utilise the LCC EdenRed account to order grocery vouchers for benefit-eligible Free-School-Meals-registered pupils in Years 7 to 11 for the Autumn Half Term Holiday.

Each eligible pupil will be issued with the equivalent of £15 per week in vouchers.

Lancaster Girls' Grammar School will organise these vouchers to be emailed to eligible pupils' families on Monday 16th October 2023. Any families who need assistance printing vouchers should contact school.

Lancashire County Council have also written to schools to ask us to direct eligible families to the Holiday Activities And Food Programme (HAF) website.
