From the 4th May 2020, Powys County Council will be charging for meals for children in our childcare hubs. The price will be £2.79 per pupil per day for three meals (Breakfast £0.70, Lunch £1.10 and Tea £0.99).

This payment will be deducted weekly from your Parent Pay account at your child's normal school. If your child is eligible for free school meals, this will continue and you will not be charged. You may instead choose to bring a packed lunch for your child.

If you are not signed up with ParentPay please contact our team on cashless.catering@powys.gov.uk or call 01597 826660.
