Government Perform U-Turn On Free School Meals After Incredible Work From Marcus Rashford

Government Perform U-Turn On Free School Meals After Incredible Work From Marcus Rashford

Boris Johnson has performed a u-turn on free school meals being available for underprivileged children thanks to a campaign from Marcus Rashford.

The Manchester United and England forward fought hard on a subject he cares passionately about, having received free school meal vouchers as a youngster while his mum worked to put food on the table.

His campaign has now paid dividends as the government have confirmed an extra £120 million will be set aside for meal vouchers to those who need them this summer.

As well as giving interviews on the matter, Rashford penned a lengthy letter to the government calling for the reversal of their decision to scrap free school meals in the holidays and encouraged people to tag their local MPs in order to raise as much awareness as possible.

Rashford deserves enormous praise for going out of his way and using his platform to make a real difference.

There's already calls for him to be in the frame for BBC Sports Personality of the Year award and it's really hard to make a case for anyone else at this moment.
