Cumbria Christmas Free School Meal (FSM) Voucher Scheme
The county council has committed to ensuring every benefits-eligible FSM young person is able to access a FSM meal for the 11 days over the Christmas holiday.
To do this the council has commissioned an e-voucher scheme from Wonde. The Wonde system is proven to work well and over half of Cumbrian schools already use Wonde for other purposes.
The vouchers will have a value of £33 for each child. The Wonde system is simple to use and after the school has provided relevant information, parents/carers are contacted directly by Wonde with their vouchers.

School Meals at South Walney Junior School
Dolce have been supplying school meals at South Walney Junior since April 2015 and they are determined to continue to offer you and your child an excellent service. Lunchtime is more than a nutritious meal, it is an opportunity to relax and socialise. It is important to us that each and every young person enjoys their meal and has the energy to study and learn in the afternoon.
Our Cook, Jo, supported by Diane and Liz, prepare and cook fresh meals daily specific to your child's preferences. The ‘Choice Menu’ includes two different hot meal options, a baguette with a choice of fillings, and a jacket potato with a choice of fillings.
Due to supply chain issues arising from the COVID19 situation, Dolce will be providing a three-choice menu option in the first half of Autumn Term 2020; the full four choice menu will hopefully be resumed after October 2020 Half Term.
Please click here to see the first half Autumn Term Menu. Update: from 12th October, 2020, there will be a choice of baguettes also on offer.

You can either pre-order for your child at home (in which case your child can't then change their preference) or allow your child to order themselves in class each morning.
Paying for School Meals - the Cashless way
Live Kitchen is the system used to order and pay for your child's meals. Your account will be set up the first time your child wishes to take a meal. You will then just need to log into your online account, click on "Account", "Direct Debit", and follow the on-screen instructions to upgrade your account to Direct Debit payments. Meals cost £2.35 per day, £11.75 per week and you are only charged for the meals your child takes. There are other cashless options available which are details on the leaflet below.
