Free Meal Entitlement Contingency Plans during school closures

Glasgow City Council are currently issuing Farmfoods Cards to eligible parents and carers. It may take up to 10 days to receive your card. Please do not contact them before Monday 6 April if you have not received your card.

Our parents and carers whose children and young people are currently entitled and in receipt of footwear and clothing grants and/or free school meals will be receiving information this week about the contingency plans in place to help replace free meal entitlement while pupils are not attending school.

Glasgow City Council are using the clothing grant and/or free school meals' data as this involves a larger number of families who will receive this support.

Letters are being posted out directly to home addresses with a £20 pre-paid Farmfoods card that can be used to buy food at stores across the city - click here to find your nearest store

£20 will then be uploaded every two weeks to the cards for each Glasgow primary and secondary pupil in a family who currently receive a footwear and clothing grant and/or free school meals.

Please hold on to the card - each card has a serial number on it which will be matched to the addressee - and we plan to top up the cards on the following dates:

13 April                   
27 April
11 May
25 May
8 June
