Your Daily Star joins hundreds of others in making sure Britain’s children don’t go hungry over half term.
We are pledging £2,000 to the charity FareShare, which delivers healthy food to food banks, community groups, activity schemes and schools.
Like many people and businesses we’ve been inspired by Marcus Rashford’s call to make sure innocent children living in the UK have enough to eat.
A Daily Star spokesman said: “We are happy to help. This is nothing to do with politics, it’s about doing the right thing.
“Going hungry is never the fault of the child.”
Lindsay Boswell, Chief Executive of FareShare, said: “We’re truly humbled by the incredible response from the public that Marcus Rashford has galvanised and we are so grateful to the Daily Star for this donation at this crucial time.
“Marcus has highlighted the issue of child hunger in the UK – an issue we have been actively working to alleviate for more than 25 years.
"Since the lockdown was introduced in March FareShare has provided over 40 million meals to UK families and as we navigate a challenging winter, we will continue to do all we can to get vital food supplies to the communities and people who need it most.”
