Parents claiming some benefits can also claim free school meals for any of their children who are registered at a Worcestershire school and who would normally be at school at lunchtime.
School meals are a good way to make sure that your child eats well at lunchtime. By claiming free school meals you save yourself time and money. Even if you don’t want your children to have the meals, claiming them helps their school. The more eligible parents who claim meals, the more funding the school receives.

receive any of the following:
  • Income Support

  • Income Related Only Employment and Support Allowance
