Rashford Urges MPs To Back School Meals Campaign

'I do not believe in nationalising children': MPs vote against extending free school meals scheme

Following his successful campaign that forced the government to feed vulnerable school children over the summer vacation amid the economic disruption caused by COVID-19, Rashford had written a petition hoping to extend those subsidized meals over future school vacations, too.

"Parents of Stevenage, if your child or children rely on a free school meal, then we will provide a cooked meal, drink, fruit and of course some churros".

"We've had a situation where children are... have been going hungry... under a Labour government... for years", Scully replied. "Our funding will enable the urgent redistribution of meals across the next couple of weeks to those in greatest need".

Rashford has been tweeting out each business offering to do so alongside their locations.

Labour-led authorities in Birmingham, Liverpool, Sheffield, Hammersmith & Fulham and Doncaster are among those agreeing to fund their own schemes. "They have failed. They must act now to ensure that no family endures a Christmas with no food in the cupboards". "Thanks for your hard work and campaigning @MarcusRashford".

There was outrage on Wednesday night after 322 members of parliament voted against the proposals, which suggested that the most disadvantaged children should receive food vouchers worth £15-a-week during the school holidays between now and Easter.

Labour warned that this will leave thousands of families facing a double whammy as half term approaches, with incomes and jobs at risk due to Chancellor Rishi Sunak's new reduced coronavirus job-support measures and free school meals for kids removed.

Italian restaurant Belluno said it would be offering a complimentary lunchtime takeaway service for children who would otherwise not be able to afford a meal. More than £35,000 has been raised so far.

"However, as we are still very much living in the shadow of the pandemic, vouchers are a lever - not flawless, not sustainable - but one which I thought could be used to reach families in Eastbourne and across the country in the immediate time ahead".

The Westminster Labour group's children's spokesperson, Cllr Tim Roca, said: "Westminster Council must step in and make sure that in one of the world's wealthiest cities, children are not allowed to go hungry this winter".

Musician Tim Burgess, a fellow Mancunian, tweeted: "Wow, @MarcusRashford is a true hero of our times". Our Tory MPs had a chance to prevent this, and they chose not to. "Check his timeline. Extraordinary from a remarkable young man". The charity has just named a new warehouse in honour of the footballer's mum, Melanie.
