How it works
The government have developed a national scheme to provide supermarket vouchers for parents / carers of pupils who are eligible for free school meals.
Parents / Carers will receive a redemption eCode directly to the email address they have registered with livekitchen (unless you provided school with an alternative email). You will receive instructions on how to use this eCode to create an eGift card which can then be used in the following supermarkets:
Once you have received your voucher, you will be able to redeem it by either:
Families are free to select the most appropriate food and drink for their child, but the vouchers can not be redeemed for any age-restricted items, such as alcohol, cigarettes or lottery tickets.
The national voucher system is only available for children who receive a means-funded free school meal. It is not available for children who receive a universal free school meal (children in F2 - Y2 who automatically receive a free school meal, and their parents have not applied for a free school meal). If you think you might be eligible for free school meals, you can still apply. If your application is successful, you will be able to receive the £15 voucher once school has been notified by Rotherham Council that you have been awarded free school meals.
Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:
