North Northamptonshire pupils who are eligible for benefits-related Free School Meals will receive support during the October half-term and Christmas holidays.
North Northamptonshire Council will provide shopping vouchers for families with children who are eligible for benefits-related Free School Meals with vouchers being distributed to the families by their schools.

While thankfully we’re moving in a more positive direction with regards to the pandemic, we are not out the woods yet. So I’m delighted that we can provide this additional support for the families and pupils who are in most need of our help.

I hope this reassures our residents in North Northamptonshire that we will always help when and where we can.
Cllr Jason Smithers, Leader of the Council


This scheme has already made a big difference for many pupils and I’m pleased that we are able to keep offering this support.

Christmas can be an expensive time for families and I’m proud that North Northamptonshire Council can provide a helping hand.
Cllr Scott Edwards the Council’s executive member for Children, Families, Education and Skills
