October Half Term Food Offer

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 share the information sheet and the website link October half term food offer - Leicester City Council with your targeted families that 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


NOTE: Some parents may not be able to use the embedded link in the information sheet through their mobile phones, please ensure both links are shared.


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.


If your school has any questions around the half term food offer please email

This is a bespoke service run in conjunction with the neighbouring sure start. The school still gets its allocated link worker and support from the Sure start but has its own family support worker in addition.
