Free school meal holiday provision will continue to be available to children from lower income families for the April and May school holidays, the Welsh Government has confirmed.
With the cost-of-living crisis continuing to have an impact on families across Wales, £9 million has been provided to offer eligible pupils a free school meal up until the end of May half term holiday, including all bank holidays during this period.
In 2020 Wales became the first UK nation to guarantee free school meals for eligible families during the school holidays. Individual local authorities decide how to administer the free meal provision, either by creating lunches or by providing vouchers or direct payments to families.
