Parents are now able to sign their children up for free school meals at the click of a button thanks to a revolutionary new online app.

Doncaster Council has set up an online application process on its website for free school meals, which allows customers to apply online and receive confirmation of eligibility there and then.

Councillor Nuala Fennelly, cabinet member for children’s services, education and skills, said: “It is widely known that school meals are an excellent way for children to get a nutritious, satisfying lunch. For some families, depending on their circumstances, their children can eat for free so I urge them to take advantage of this.”

The new app is available at www.doncaster.gov.uk by visiting the ‘Do it Online’ section. For more help contact the council on 01302 735336.
