Outcry over COVID-19 food parcels for UK children prompts U-turn | Europe| News and current affairs from around the continent | DW | 13.01.2021 (Ten days of food – not!)

UK food parcel “We were gobsmacked,” Mizz, who didn’t want to give her full name, told DW. “I grew up poor, and I know poor. I can make a meal out of thin air — but not with this,” the 41-year-old said. Mizz said her parcel was meant to provide lunch for her 12-year-old for 10 days: one loaf of bread, half a cucumber, one pepper, a few potatoes, a block of cheese, a pack of butter, four pieces of fruit, a chocolate bar and some salty snacks.
