Holiday food support will continue for families over Easter

Supermarket vouchers worth £570,000 have been sent to families of 19,000 children in Devon to help them buy food over the upcoming Easter holidays.

As part of the government’s ‘household support fund’, which has provided support to families since the start of the Covid pandemic. Devon County Council has used this fund to provide approximately 140,000 supermarket vouchers for families who qualify for free school meals to be used in school holidays.

Other support including the Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) scheme, will be available throughout the Easter break.   find out more about the Holiday Activity and Food scheme on the Devon County Council website.
