BORIS Johnson has today blasted the food parcels fiasco in a discussion with Marcus Rashford.
The football ace – who forced the Government into a u-turn on feeding the UK’s neediest kids during the lockdown – has tweeted about the phone call.
Mums and dads say they’re not getting enough food to give their hungry kids for lunch for a full week
He said: “Just had a good conversation with the Prime Minister.
“He has assured me that he is committed to correcting the issue with the food hampers and that a full review of the supply chain is taking place.
“He agrees that images of hampers being shared on Twitter are unacceptable.”
Frantic parents shared pictures of potatoes and cans of beans, a loaf of bread and a block of cheese or boxes of cold chips after expecting enough food for a week’s worth of lunches.
Many have also been sent five bottles of water – despite being able to give their children water from the tap.
Some say they hadn’t received anything yet after weeks of waiting.
And Rashford, who has long campaigned to keep kids fed throughout the pandemic through free school meals, yesterday shared photos of the paltry packages.
He said: “One thing that is clear is that there was very little communication with the suppliers that a national lockdown was coming.
“We MUST do better. Children shouldn’t be going hungry on the basis that we aren’t communicating or being transparent with plans. That is unacceptable.”
