Free schools meal deliveries for children self-isolating

A number of schools have been in touch with our team to ask about support arrangements for delivering free school meals in the event of a school bubble self-isolating or a whole school closure. We now have the following guidance in place for schools:

  • Gather the required information.
  • Get your food provider to prepare a weekly package – if you can’t do this, please let us know asap as we will need to identify further support.
  • Ensure you have consent from families before passing over their address and contact details.
  • Call Paul Milburn from Cumbria Fire and Rescue on 07825 053194 and provide the following information (if your call is not answered immediately, please leave a voicemail and someone will call you back): 
    • School Name
    • School Address
    • Number of bubbles isolating/ if whole school is isolating
    • Pick up location and time
    • Number of deliveries required
    • Address and contact details for each delivery
    • Days and times of deliveries required
    • Contact details for the liaison person at school
    • Summary of any risks the delivery people need to know about.

Any queries please contact your general advisor.
