A Free School Meal is a school lunch provided free of charge by Aberdeenshire Council to children from families on a low income. If a child attends a secondary, he/she will be given a daily credit allowance to be used in the school dining hall at lunchtime. The credit allowance is the equivalent value of a two course meal.
