Free School Meals – Summer 2024

Dear parents and carers,

I hope that you are all keeping safe and well. As you are aware, schools are now approaching the end of the academic year. We wanted to share with you the support available to families over this period who would be entitled to Free School Meals.

Sandwell Council has made arrangements for you to receive food vouchers via a partnership with One voucher will be issued per eligible child and each voucher will be to the value of £90 for the Summer break. This will include children with no recourse to public funds (NRPF) that schools have identified as having eligibility.

These vouchers will be sent via TEXT or EMAIL to your mobile phone. If you do not have internet access on your mobile and are therefore unable to view the voucher, you can forward the message to someone who has and they can help you redeem the voucher.

If you are unable to do this, please contact us as soon as possible.

You will receive a link to obtain an e-voucher:

  • Follow this link, choose which supermarket you would like an e-voucher for and press submit. The supermarkets available for selection are: Asda, Morrisons, Tesco, Sainsbury’s Groceries, Aldi, Iceland, B&M and Farmfoods.
  • You will then be sent an e-voucher for your chosen supermarket. Please be aware that the timescale for this to be sent will vary by supermarket. The expected turnaround is approximately 24 hours.

If you have any questions about the message that you receive from Wonde, or if you believe you should have received a message from Wonde and haven’t, please contact [email protected]

For those families who are struggling or in need of extra support during the school holidays, we continue to offer Holiday Activities and Food during the Summer break. Eligible children can enjoy fun activities and a meal, free of charge. Families have been contacted directly about this offer and more details are here:

There is also support available on the Supporting Sandwell website at including financial advice.

Going forward, free school meals vouchers issued to families during school holidays may no longer continue into the new 2024/25 academic year and beyond. Further updates will, of course, be provided nearer the time

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,
