School meals: Boris Johnson refuses to move on school meal vouchers – BBC News – (the hunger is on you Boris!)

“Yes, we are in receipt of Universal Credit, however due to our low income and having to pay for bills as well as trying to put a meal on the table, the very slight increase on this has not made any difference for us whatsoever.”

Earlier, the children’s commissioner, Anne Longfield, said money going to local councils “gets tied up then in processes, in distribution, in bureaucracies”, and that might not help some children.

She said the beauty of the free school meals scheme “is that it gets directly to children”, adding: “There’ll be children who are desperate for that help and that’s something that really makes this a very urgent priority for Boris Johnson when he gets to his desk today.”
