Further details of how to access the Council's Free School Meals scheme this half-term have been published by Kingston Council's partner, Achieving for Children.
Under the scheme, to be eligible, your child must be:
- School age (5 to 18)
- Eligible for free school meals
- Resident in Kingston
Kingston Council will accept referrals via an allocated professional for a child such as a family support worker or social worker. Those who do not have an allocated professional can self refer via the Kingston Stronger Together Hub.

The decision for Lib Dem-run Kingston Council to step in and provide Free School Meals to children who need them over the half-term, helping to reduce holiday hunger, came after the Conservatives in Government refused to do so. You can read more about this by clicking here.
