Children in receipt of Free School Meals will receive supermarket vouchers to use over the Christmas holidays.
From Tuesday 8th December, Devon County Council, will be sending a unique code per child to all families that are currently in receipt of Free School Meals.
Parents and carers need to look out for a letter or email from DCC next week for details about how to access their vouchers or an alternative food box.
Each code can be used once on a website called ‘Hawk Select’ to redeem vouchers to the value of £30 per child (£15 per week for the two weeks of school holidays) for Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Morrison’s, Asda, M&S Food and Waitrose.
The website will require you to provide an email address for the vouchers to be sent to once you have chosen your preferred supermarket. When received, you can save the vouchers 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.
There is an education helpline is available on 0345 155 1019 for any questions about the unique codes. There are also some useful FAQs on the Hawk Select website along with contact details for any technical support about using the codes and vouchers.
