Caterers must “urgently” improve the quality of food parcels being provided to the poorest pupils in England while schools are closed during the national lockdown, a minister has said.
Children’s minister Vicky Ford said this would ensure eligible children received “a healthy, nutritious lunch”.
It comes after footballer Marcus Rashford shared images of some parcels online, calling them
“not good enough”.
