May Half Term Food Offer

The city council is again working with Samworth Brothers to support families with food over the May half-term.  There will be five pop-up venues across the city that will give parents of free school meal children and those needing additional support, the opportunity to collect food for the half term.


Please see the information sheet and follow the website link Half term food offer - Leicester City Council if you are interested in this and  meet the criteria below:


  • receive benefits-related free school meals
  • who are in full time school (4 to 16 years)
  • live in Leicester City or attend a city school if they live outside of Leicester
  • those families needing additional support i.e. vulnerable children


Please note:

Parents need to register for a venue by 11:59pm on Monday 6 May, using the online form found within the information sheet.  The registration window closes early to allow Samworth Brothers enough time to arrange supplies for the events.


Please be aware places at the pop-up pantries are limited and will be offered on a first come first served basis.


Food vouchers will not be issued for free school meal children this May half-term.
