23-10-20 7pm Update
Yesterday the Leader of the Council announced that Birmingham City Council will fund free school meals for eligible pupils over the half term period.
This has been a fast moving situation with a local response being provided to a national issue and we apologise that we were not able to inform you earlier. Again, schools had no notice of this situation unfolding and we found out by watching the news.
The council will be making arrangements for this during half term, working to ensure vouchers or equivalent can be provided retrospectively to schools after the half-term break to be distributed to families. Therefore, support will be available for eligible families at the beginning of term.
In the meantime, support is available from Ladywood Food Bank.
