This petition was rejected

The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:

Petitions need to call on the Government or Parliament to take a specific action.

Free school meals are usually only offered to eligible pupils during term time. The Government has launched a £170m Covid Winter Grant Scheme to support children, families and the most vulnerable to March 2021, with at least 80% of this funding earmarked to support with food and bills. The Holiday Activities and Food programme will also cover the Easter, Summer and Christmas holidays in 2021.
