Holiday Free School Meal vouchers

The deadline to apply for Holiday Free School Meal (FSM) Vouchers for the Summer holidays is open until 12pm on 12 July.

No. If you have received a voucher through the council’s scheme during previous holidays you do not need to reapply, your voucher will be sent to you automatically.

Yes. Nearer the time, we will announce that applications are open with a link to the form. We will also link to the application form on this page.

You will receive an e-mail from the following email address: selectcode@select-your-reward.co.uk. This is not spam, but may come through into your junk/spam folder, so please check this regularly.

Once you have clicked on the link within the email and selected the supermarket you would like to shop at, the e-voucher should come through within one hour of redemption.

If for any reason your voucher does not come through after having selected your supermarket, please contact Select Code on the following number: 0344 693 9901 or via their online form.

The vouchers will be sent to the email address you have provided. If you have received vouchers previously and your email address has changed since then, please email the Children's Fund inbox and provide:

  • your name;
  • your child’s name;
  • your old email address;
  • your new email address; and
  • whether you first registered for vouchers in previous school holidays since October 2020.

The vouchers will be sent out between 15-16 February.

If you have not received your voucher by noon on the 17 February, please email the Children's Fund inbox and provide:

  • your name; and
  • your child’s name

and explain that you have not received the email.

You should receive your initial email between the 13-14 July.

If you have not received your voucher by 12pm on the 15 July, please email Childrensfund@gloucestershire.gov.uk providing details of your name, and your child’s name, explaining that you have not received the email.

The following supermarkets are part of this voucher scheme:

  • Sainsbury's
  • Morrison's
  • Asda
  • Tesco
  • Aldi
    The vouchers can also be used online at asda.com if you are unable to access a supermarket.

You will receive a voucher equivalent to your free school meal entitlement of £15 per child per week. For the winter holiday period, you will receive the total amount for both weeks of the scheme. For example, if you have two children you will receive one £60 voucher.

If you have not registered previously, please sign up using the application form.

If you had previously registered other children and need to register a new child, please contact the Children's Fund inbox with the name, school and age of the new child.

Please contact the Children's Fund inbox with the name, school and age of all your children who receive free school meals.
