Free School Meals Update for Dumfries & Galloway

Families in Dumfries & Galloway now have 3 ways they can receive Free School Meals:

1: Receive a Cash Sum of £35 every 2 weeks (£17.50 weekly) for each child & arrange your own food.

2: Delivery of Free School Meals Food Pack to your house

3: Collection of Free School Meals Food Pack from a Community Hub

If you choose 2 or 3, this is the same way you receive the Free School Meal. You do not have to do anything about this.

You need to register by 10.00pm on a Tuesday for payment on a Friday. This is a rolling programme until schools return or the end of term. You will continue to receive your food delivery, or make a collection until your first payment. This will stop as you will receive the cash payment. You will be paid once every two weeks on a Friday until schools return or the end of term. If you do not choose a cash payment, collecting food packs or having them delivered to your home will continue.

If you have any questions about your payment, please email Education Support at Dumfries and Galloway Council.

However, if you would like help or advice, please contact our Financial Inclusion Team. You can use the contact details listed below.


Our Financial Inclusion Officers are here to give support to our tenants on a wide range of financial problems.
