Free School Meals
In Hackney, around 40% of young people are eligible for free school meals but not all of them take it up. This is particularly the case in secondary schools where students can feel embarrassed about receiving free school meals.
Eating a good meal at lunch will help students concentrate in lessons – so please make sure that if eligible – you sign up as you can save up to £390 a year.
