The council has agreed to extend the Household Support Fund to support families with food and utility poverty delivered through WONDE, ensuring every benefits-eligible free school meal young person is able to access a voucher over the Christmas holiday. The vouchers have a value of £34.50 [10 days at £3.45 per day] for each eligible child; these are fully funded by Cumbria County Council using the grant.
