The UK government will spend a further £ 400 million (around £ 440 million) to support children from poor families in the UK. Prime Minister Boris Johnson seems to have been tackled by the campaign of Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford.

Until the end of March, according to the BBC approximately 188 million euros divided among the various municipalities. The money is to be used to feed families in poverty over the coming winter and help them pay bills.

About 230 million euros of the total amount is intended for the coming holiday periods up to and including Christmas 2021. The UK government is also investing about 17.7 million euros in the national food banks.

The cash injection is another boost for Rashford, who started his campaign to support children from poor families in June. The government did not want to provide free meals to 1.3 million children from poor families during the summer holidays, but continued with the scheme thanks to Rashford.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson called the striker on Saturday evening after Manchester United’s away game against Everton (1-3 win) to inform him about the latest investments. “I had a good talk with the Prime Minister to hear about the new plan and I am very pleased with the steps that are being taken to combat food poverty.”

Rashford, just 22, was awarded in July for his role in the fight against child poverty. He was the youngest person ever to receive an honorary doctorate from the University of Manchester.
