Crosby Businesses Offering Free Meals For Kids This Half Term.
This week MP’s rejected the campaign led by footballer, Marcus Rashford to extend free meals during school holidays to those who need. Following this, Rashford took to twitter telling his 3.5 million followers “A significant number of children are going to bed tonight not only hungry but feeling like they do not matter because of comments that have been made today.” Despite all our local businesses still fighting their way through the challenges of extended Covid restrictions, they’ve come out shouting “You will be heard!”. Here’s the Crosby businesses offering free meals for kids who need them, this half term.
