Free School Meals

Online Free School Meal Eligibility Checking

Hampshire County Council Catering Services (HC3S) operates an online service so parents can check their eligibility for free school meals themselves. This self-service option is available at:

Please note that the criteria for free school meals is the same, regardless of method of checking eligibility, but for the online service, all you need to do is enter your name, national insurance number or asylum number, your address and your child’s details. Press ‘submit’ and you will find out if you are eligible. If your result comes back ‘found’, this means your child is eligible for free school meals and the system automatically tells your school. No more hassle in digging out paperwork and going into school to get it checked!
