Free food supplement vouchers

Free Food Supplement Vouchers - CHRISTMAS 2022

Sheffield City Council has made a commitment to make sure that no child or young person should go hungry. We know these are particularly difficult time for families with extra costs for food and energy.  

A £30 food supplement voucher will be sent to the following groups to help over the Christmas holidays:

  • Families who claim income-based Free School Meals (FSM).
  • Families who get income-assessed Early Years Support (2–4-Year-Olds).
  • Young people leaving their care setting (Care Leavers).

SCC have again worked with Edenred, the company who managed the Free School Meals vouchers previously. They have produced a unique code for every student eligible, which will be for a £30 food voucher for Christmas 2022.

If you qualify you will receive a letter for the council containing your unique code.

The Process

  • As before, parents/carers need to go to the following website to redeem their vouchers -
  • Enter their unique 16-digit e-Code and select their chosen supermarket. Edenred give them a choice of 10 supermarkets: Aldi, Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, M&S, McColl’s, Company Shop, Iceland and Farmfoods.
  • Parents/carers can download their vouchers for more than one supermarket. For example, £15 for Aldi and £15 for Asda.
  • The downloaded E-Gift Card/Voucher will arrive by email within 24 hours. If they cannot find this, they should check their Junk/Spam folder

Please note that codes need to be activated within 3 months or they will be cancelled. Once they have claimed their voucher on the Edenred website the voucher will be valid for 12 months.
