Marcus Rashford has campaigned tirelessly for the Government to supply vulnerable children with free school melas.
However, beneficiaries of the scheme has been left disappointed this week.
The Manchester United forward now says he had a “good conversation” with Prime Minister Boris Johnson about the issues with food hampers.
A number of disadvantaged families across of the UK have been outraged this week as they’ve been supplied with meagre parcels of food to feed their children.
The food in each parcel is meant to last a week but is estimated to come to little more than £5…
Rashford took up the latest issue with Johnson — after forcing the UK Government into two U-turns over the past year.
Just had a good conversation with the Prime Minister. He has assured me that he is committed to correcting the issue with the food hampers and that a full review of the supply chain is taking place. He agrees that images of hampers being shared on Twitter are unacceptable.

“He has assured me that he is committed to correcting the issue with the food hampers and that a full review of the supply chain is taking place,” Rashford tweeted. “He agrees that imagines of hampers being shared on Twitter are unacceptable.”
Rashford shared a picture of a deliver that should feed one family for up to three days. It contained just four apples, one tin of beans, three small juices, two little treats and a couple of items in small white paper bags.
We can’t expect people to live like that. It’s just wrong!
