According to the "Mirror" report, Manchester United player Rashford called on the government to provide more free lunch and food subsidies for poor students, but the Minister of Education refused to support his approach. In this regard, Master La believes that the government lacks humanistic care for poor students.
Rashford said: “I’m so disappointed that the children are the hope of the country’s future. The government’s actions in recent weeks have made me feel that the government has no sympathy for the fragile hopes. They have made millions of children. Starving at night is a matter of human nature."
"We need to do better." Rashford asked the government to provide free school meals to more than one million British students during the summer. He himself has also cooperated with several major British food brands to establish food assistance groups for poor children. They called for expanding the scale of free school meals and raising the standard for healthy food subsidies from 3.1 pounds to 4.25 pounds.
However, Education Minister Gavin Williamson said in a letter to Rashford that he would not fully support the players' calls and mobilizations. The minister emphasized that the government has made relevant assistance, including subsidy programs and summer food funds. He said in the letter: "I understand that you and the Food Assistance Team for Poor Children want to make suggestions for the national food strategy. The government will consider your suggestions."
