Free School Meal Vouchers During The Summer ?
Last week we posted Marcus Rashford’s success of helping raise over £20 million in financial and food donations which has supplied three million meals to vulnerable people.
If that wasn’t enough, Marcus Rashford says he wants to do more to help those in need after winning a battle to have a free school meal voucher scheme extended. The voucher scheme in England works out at about £15 a week per recipient, and will cost the public purse around £120m.
His campaign prompted a government U-turn that will see parents claim vouchers for about 1.3 million children in England during the summer holidays.
