Deadline extended for Easter Cook 'n' Eat

Easter cook n eat box

The deadline for Gateshead families, who qualify for free school meals, to apply for an Easter Cook 'n' Eat box has been extended.

Last week we wrote to thousands of Gateshead families whose children qualify for free school meals to make them aware of our Easter Cook 'n' Eat project and invite them to get involved.

We have been made aware that many of the letters to families have been delayed so may not reach families before the tight deadline that they needed to reply, Friday 19 March.  

To allow as many of our families who are eligible for free school meals to take part in the project we've extended the deadline to request a box to 4pm, Thursday 25 March. It's important that we have a deadline so that orders can be placed with suppliers to ensure everyone who wants to be involved doesn't miss out.

If your child(ren) are eligible for free school meals you can find out more about the Cook 'n' Eat project by reading the invitation letter. Applications must be received by Thursday 25 March.
