Free school meal costs jump

The cost of free school meals has risen by 65 per cent in the last five years, according to the Department of Education, Sport and Culture.

A freedom of information request asked how much the department had spent providing school dinners since 2012.

The department said five years ago free school meals cost a total of £465,000.

However, last year that figure had leapt to £767,000.
