Shocking News tonight as the Government cuts Free School Meals for parents earning more than £7,400 from April 1st (Not a April Fools Joke either).
Currently all families on Universal Credit can claim free school meals – a transitional measure to help people move to the six-in-one benefit.
But from April 1, children in Year 3 and above on Universal Credit in England will not normally be eligible if their parents earn more than £7,400.
The Children’s Society has said the “huge step backwards” means “one million children in poverty who could benefit now won’t”, as more families move onto Universal Credit in future.
