October Half Term 2022

Please find details of our October half term food offer. 

The city council is again working with Samworth Brothers to support families with food over the October half term. There will be six pop up venues across the city that will give parents of free school meal children and those needing additional support, the opportunity to collect food for the half term.

Please click the information sheet (Click Here) and the website link October half term food offer - Leicester City Council (Click Here) if you meet the criteria below:

  • receive benefits-related free school meals
  • who are in full time school (4 to 16 years)
  • live in Leicester City or attend a city school if they live outside of Leicester
  • those families needing additional support i.e. vulnerable children

Parents must register for a venue by Tuesday 4 October, using the online form found within the information sheet. The registration window closes early to allow Samworth Brothers enough time to arrange supplies for the events. 

Places at the food pop up shops are limited and will be offered on a first come first served basis.

Food vouchers will not be issued for free school meal children this half term.

Best wishes
