About the scheme
Devon County Council is supporting families of children who currently receive free school meals during term time with supermarket vouchers to help buy food during the holidays.
The unique code can be used to get vouchers to the value of £30 for Sainsburys, Tesco, Morrisons, Asda, Aldi, M&S Food and Waitrose to purchase food over the Easter holidays to replace the meals your child would have received at school during the day. Please be advised that the Morrisons voucher must be used in store and cannot be redeemed online,
If you have more than one child entitled to free school meals, you should receive a unique code for each child, as the holiday vouchers are issued separately.
Getting the vouchers
Devon County Council has partnered with an organisation called Black Hawk Network to help us distribute these vouchers as quickly as possible via their ‘Select’ website because they have lots of experience managing voucher schemes like this and are working with several other local authorities too.
· To get your vouchers you will need to visit a website called ‘Select’ and input your unique code.
· You will then be able to choose your preferred supermarket and add your vouchers to your basket.
· Please then checkout of the ‘Select’ website by providing an email address for them to send you your chosen supermarket vouchers electronically. There is no option to receive physical vouchers by post.
· Once you have received the vouchers to your email inbox, you can save them to your phone or tablet to use online (depending on the supermarket) or show at the checkout in store. Alternatively, you can print the vouchers off to give to the cashier.
What if I need some help?
If you are struggling to get your vouchers because you don’t have access to the internet or a mobile device to receive and store the vouchers on, and don’t have any friends or family to help, please contact Devon County Council’s education helpline on 0345 155 1019.
Arrangements are in place to support you if you cannot shop, either in store on online, at one of the supermarkets where the vouchers can be spent. Again, please call Devon County Council’s education helpline on 0345 155 1019.
