Free food supplement vouchers for October half term
The Local Authority has confirmed plans to provide food supplement vouchers for 32,500 children across the city for October half term
A £15 food supplement voucher will be sent to the following groups to help over October half term:
- Families who claim income-based Free School Meals (FSM).
- Families who get income-assessed Early Years Support (2–4-Year-Olds).
- Young people leaving their care setting (Care Leavers).
Voucher letters should arrive with parents w/c 10 October. Please note that these are sent from the Local Authority and not from the school. Any child/young person that becomes eligible for a food voucher between 26 September 2022 and 23 October 2022 will be sent a voucher letter w/c 24 October 2022.
As before, parents/carers need to go to the following website to redeem their vouchers - www.selectyourcompliment.co.uk/grocery
Enter their unique 16-digit e-Code and select their chosen supermarket. There is a choice of 10 supermarkets: Aldi, Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, M&S, McColl’s, Company Shop, Iceland and Farmfoods.
Parents/carers can download their vouchers for more than one supermarket. For example, £10 for Aldi and £5 for Asda.
The downloaded E-Gift Card/Voucher will arrive by email within 24 hours. If they cannot find this, they should check their Junk/Spam folder
Please note that codes need to be activated within 3 months or they will be cancelled. Once they have claimed their voucher on the Edenred website the voucher will be valid for 12 months.
Families can get further help from the Free School Meals helpline on 0114 2734567 or they can contact EdenRed directly on 0333 400 5932 or at email@example.com
