I'm a single working parent struggling to make ends meet. I have been looking into the free school meals criteria as this would help me so much. I strongly believe that the eligibility criteria should be looked into. I feel that eligibility should NOT be based on being in receipt of certain benefits but should be based on income! I know of families who have higher earnings than myself just on benefits, than i do trying to make a honest living. Why is it that if you are receiving WTC you are not entitled? Surely it makes more sense to say that if you receive CTC and WTC and your income is still below £16,190 you are entitled to make a claim. With the cost of living increasing it makes more sense to sit a home and claim benefits and get everything paid for. I totally understand that some people have no choice but to depend on benefits however i feel people in employment should not be penalised for working.  I hope that there are people out there that share my frustration
