Grow up
Noted the TV news clip of the complaining mum taking food from the American-style fridge in her trendy modern kitchen!

Always two sides to a story. Of course we should support kids who don't have enough good food but how much of the effort and cost is well targetted?

Has anyone investigated the ownership of the scumbag company dishing out the dreadful hampers? Any political connections?

Chartwells, part of Compass Group, were given the contract to supply emergency packages to families who would usually rely on free school meals as children were forced to learn from home.

The group’s former chairman, Paul Walsh, was once a member of David Cameron’s business advisory group and a Conservative Party donor.

I noticed that too. I'd love one of those fridges but could never afford it (I spent the money on feeding my own kids)
The story was then repeated on our local news, but this time the "struggling mum" was shown in close up taking the items out of the parcel. So you could not miss the fact that she had freshly applied fake gel nails (bright blue) and tattoos on both wrists (what did they cost?)

"Poverty" is a relative term- it could be contended that there are very few families in poverty today, compared to maybe 50 years ago, when some of my friends' parents' houses would have no carpets, pre-war shoddy furniture, no TV, no phone.... and certainly no car or fridge! It's a question of priorities, what's more important, putting food on the table or having new phones and trainers?

You can't use vouchers to buy alcohol, tobacco, lottery tickets and fuel, however it doesn't mean you're using them for nutritious children's meals.

Also you could spend these towards your weekly shopping and then have more to spend on booze and cigs... Am sure this doesn't happen though! I mean what parent supposidly struggling on food bill would spend money on smoking and booze.......

First things first: if you cannot afford to have children then do not have them. Secondly, the welfare system is out there to help people who have fallen on hard times, not a career choice.
In terms of the immediate issue with the taxpayer having to feed people's children then if the food parcels are not adequate then a food voucher should be issued. NO cash should be given.
It's short sighted creeps such as yourself who consistently fail to see the these children are a real asset that require investment to secure our economic future!

You also need to realize that poor people of necessity spend money back into the economy, thus maintaining demand and the flow of income, rather than stuff it in useless asset investments. The real bane of the UK economy for 40 years.

I had to have free school meals in the 1970’s. Sometimes they were good other times they were awful. It was a case of take it or leave it. There was no choice of what you had.
There was no free meals in the holidays. Mothers just budgeted and allowed for them. Food as a percentage of wages and benefits was much more costlier than now.

I agree more should be done for free school meals, but these people need to contribute fairly as well and at present they dont due to tax avoidance schemes...hypocritical all of them!!!!!
He doesn't need to pay as much because he buys up houses stopping genuine people from buying them and then rents them out to people and takes the smaller hit on that instead.

He said he does that to "protect his family's income".

So parents fail and its ok to let the tax payer bring up your kids? There was no bail out when I had my kids. It was a conscious decision based on if we could afford a child or more. People put their smoking, drinking and home electronics before their parental responsibilities and expect the tax payer to support them.

Happy to help families in genuine need, but I strongly object to supporting families and single mothers on maximum benefits who don't take responsibility for the proper welfare of their children. When they have their begging bowl out looking for every benefit, yet have SKY TV Max, iPhones and Playstations and McDonalds. If parents shopped more sensibly and learned to cook it would help.

I fed mine a sandwich and a yoghurt - they're kids! Parents, welfare and child allowance are there for this. Maybe they need more, but that is balanced against other priorities.

First things first: if you cannot afford to have children then do not have them. Secondly, the welfare system is out there to help people who have fallen on hard times, not a career choice.
In terms of the immediate issue with the taxpayer having to feed people's children then if the food parcels are not adequate then a food voucher should be issued. NO cash should be given.

I also believe that parents want instant meals and can’t be bothered to prepare and cook meals. Food is plentiful and cheap. Lots of cut priced shops.

Really? I dont believe you. My neighbour is a single mother on benefits has two teenage boys and runs two cars and has two dogs. Me and my wife in our 50s go off to work every day while she laughs in our face! So give me a breakdown of benefits please . Do they get money after their rent is paid for? If so how much? We got £5 per week for each kid in the 90s'.

Benefits should not be paid dependent on children, if you work you are not paid based on the number of kids you have. All adults should get the same and it should cover the needs of the family as wages do.

Based on the sums of money involved, it appears to me that Messrs Rashford, Kerridge & co, could quite easily pay for all this themselves (perhaps with a few more of their celebrity friends), without any need to impose more of a burden on ordinary working-class and middle-class taxpayers.

So why don't they just go ahead and do that, without picking the pockets of the rest of us?

Rashford & Chefs

If this group of people are sincerely concerned their views would carry more weight if they each contributed say £500K of their personal wealth to charities working in this area of need. In Rashfords case to get fellow overpaid footballers to do the same, after all these "entertainers' gained their weath from fans support, and Chefs from TV & advertising revenues - OK

Perhaps these celebrity chefs are inviting 'the poor' in for some free meals, to dine on their taster menus - 'hand picked pea, sliced 12 different ways by a Norwegian directly related to the Vikings, with an 1/8th of a carrot bathed in volcanic water gathered by Elves in Kenya and smothered in cuckoo tears' - the poor would still be starving...and the tax payer £40 a course lighter.

Watch out! Your ill-informed inverted snobbery & bigotry is showing. You don't know whether these people are making charitable donations to help this cause.
