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 six 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 the website link Half term food offer - Leicester City Council 

Families applying need to meet the criteria below: 

  • receive benefits-related free school meals
  • children 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


Deadline for families to register:

Parents need to register for a venue by Monday 15 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. 

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 half term.


Holiday Activity and Food Programme - summer 2023:

Details of the City Council's Holiday Activity and Food Programme offer will be shared with schools later this term.
