Holiday Free School Meal Vouchers

Gloucestershire County Council is providing 2 weeks of vouchers at £15 per child eligible for free school meals, per week for the Summer 2024 holiday.


The other 4 weeks of the holiday are supported through the HAF programme, which provides a meal for children attending the activities they are booked onto. For more information, please ask families to visit Gloucestershire HAF where they can also sign up to the Children’s Activities Booking System (CABS). The HAF programme is a separate scheme, and vouchers cannot be issued as an alternative.  


Applications for holiday Free School Meal vouchers for Summer 2024 holiday will be open from midday 25 June 2024 until midday on 09 July 2024. Applications cannot be accepted after this date. Vouchers will be distributed to families the week commencing 15 July 2024.


If you have previously signed up for the free school meal vouchers programme you do not need to do anything.  Vouchers will automatically be sent to you.  If you have not previously applied for vouchers, you must apply here: Holiday free school meal vouchers | Gloucestershire County Council
