Stirling Council can confirm it will provide free school meals over the Christmas break via a direct payment for eligible children.

The Council will pay £2.40 per child, per week day, to families during the holidays.

No action is required for those already registered for free school meals.

Those who are not registered but are now eligible should fill out a form on the Stirling Council website by 11 December to avoid any delays in payments.

Details of eligibility criteria is also available on this webpage.

If you received a payment for the Footwear & Clothing Grant/School Meals grant and your bank details have changed please contact our finance team to update your bank details.
