Apply for Free School Meals - Forms & Information

A NEW online system has been launched to apply for free school meals in North Yorkshire.


The digital application, created by North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC), involves a four-step process and tells applicants instantly if their child is eligible.


Families who receive certain benefits can apply in order to have free school meals.

Applicants will need their National Insurance Number, or National Asylum Support Service number and a copy of a document such as a Universal Credit statement. Families can apply for free school meals at any point in the school year.

The new form also links to Google Translate, so can be accessed in any language. 


The digital application form to apply for free school meals can be found here:
