Free Lunch at Schools

Details 

Starting from the 2014/15 school year, the provision of Free Lunch at Schools has been incorporated into the Government’s regular assistance programme.  It aims at providing free lunch at schools for primary students from low-income families so as to enable eligible students to have more balanced and substantial meals at schools.

 

Target Students

Participating schools will be provided with the funding with respect to the number of Primary 1 to Primary 6 students meeting all the following criteria

(i)     receiving full grant under the Student Financial Assistance Schemes;

(ii)    studying in whole-day government, aided (including special schools) or primary schools under the Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS); and

(iii)   having lunch arranged by the schools they attend.

 

Funding Arrangements

Participating schools will be provided with the relevant funding direct by the Education Bureau for making lunch charges on behalf of their Primary 1 to Primary 6 students meeting all the above criteria.    

 

Application

All whole-day government, aided (including special schools) and primary schools under the DSS are invited to participate in the Free Lunch at Schools by completing the Application Form attached to the relevant circular memorandum, issued in May each year, and return it to the Extended Support Programmes Section on or before the due date (the circular memorandum for the 2020/21 school year is EDB Circular Memorandum No. 59/2020).
