Online map launched for Shropshire supermarkets accepting free school meal vouchers

The Government launched the national online free school meal voucher scheme at the beginning of April, to provide supermarket vouchers for families of benefit-related pupils who are not able to attend school due to the COVID-19 lockdown.

Shropshire Council has developed an interactive online map to help families find the locations of the supermarkets across the county that accept the Government’s free school meal vouchers.

Phil Wilson, Shropshire Council’s learning and skills service manager, said: “As the number of supermarkets accepting the vouchers has steadily increased in recent weeks we’ve produced this interactive  map to help parents find a supermarket near them at which the vouchers can  be exchanged. We hope they find it to be helpful.”

The map is available here.

The supermarket chains currently accepting vouchers are:

  • Aldi
  • Marks & Spencer Food
  • Morrisons
  • Tesco
  • Asda
  • McColls
  • Sainsbury’s
  • Waitrose
