Wandsworth families with children that receive free school meals during term time will receive vouchers by email or text message. These can be exchanged for food at the supermarket of their choice. The process will happen automatically for eligible families – parents do not need to apply.  

The popular Wandsworth Connected scheme enjoyed by thousands of children this summer will also be running to provide free activities and free lunches to children on free school meals.  

It is run in partnership with local clubs and organisations and includes art, cooking, music, sport and fitness, ice skating and other fun activities. Find out more and book.  

Cabinet member for children Kate Stock said: “Free school meals, the Wandsworth Connected scheme and our School Uniform Support Scheme mean we can make sure our help is delivered directly to families that most need it during the Cost of Living crisis.  

“If you need help but your children do not qualify for free school meals, please visit our Cost of Living Hub to see what other support is available.”
