Offer eligible families free school meal vouchers instead of a school meal

Petition Details

To give parents of children eligible for free school meals the option of receiving vouchers, to allow them to purchase and provide a packed lunch, instead of their child receiving a free meal at school.

Additional Information

This would benefit children who are not eating the free school meal but would prefer a packed lunch from home. There are so many children who come home hungry as they do not eat the free school meal provided at school, for several reasons. So instead of the school automatically getting funding to provide the child with a school meal, give parents an option to offer their child a packed lunch by offering free school meal supermarket vouchers.
