Free school meals can be given if you fall into one of the following categories:

  • You receive Income Support
  • You receive Job Seeker’s Allowance (income-based)
  • You receive Employment and Support Allowance (income-related)
  • You get support under part six of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • You receive the guarantee credit element of Pension Credit
  • You are entitled to Child Tax credit, you do not get Working Tax Credit and your family’s annual income (as assessed by the Inland Revenue) is not more than £16,190. Anyone receiving Working Tax Credit is not entitled to free school meals regardless of their income unless you have become unemployed in which case free meals can be granted for a four week period only
  • You receive Universal Credit, and your household income is less than £7,400 a year

Huggg food vouchers for school holidays

Children (aged 2-19) who are eligible for free school meals can get Huggg food vouchers in the school holidays. 


The amount depends on the length of the holiday, but it is at least £15 for half term and at least £30 for longer holidays. The vouchers are funded by central government as part of the Household Support Fund.

If you haven't activated the voucher by the deadline, it will be cancelled. Once you have activated the voucher, you have a year to spend it. 


How to get a Huggg voucher

The vouchers are issued before each holiday via schools, colleges and early years providers.

If you have already received your voucher, but are unsure how to use it, you can find helpful guides on the Huggg website: How do I use my voucher?

If you think you are eligible but haven’t received a voucher, please contact your school, college or provider first.

If you are still having issues you can contact our Free School Meals team:
