Me too mate, thank you for your support 👊🏾
To one of the greatest. It was a dream come true to play alongside you. Congrats on the most unbelievable career. The 🐐 Happy Retirement @WayneRooney ♥️
The day I got my senior call up I got on the bus and had no idea where to sit. Everyone had their spot. It was daunting. Then I found my spot alongside Wazza, thank you for making me feel so at ease and welcomed @WayneRooney legend ♥️
From Monday we will bolster the Government’s weekly £15 School Meal Vouchers to £20. The extra £5 can provide children in England with nutritious meals each day at home. So you can get breakfast & lunch for 2 children for £20.
See our nutritionists' planner for meal inspiration.
Thank you @marksandspencer 👏🏾♥️
Like @MarcusRashford , the Council and our partners believe in food justice.
Our superb markets are open for essential supplies. They have also been helping support some of the borough’s most vulnerable families.
Love that @blackburndarwen has mobilised local business into their hunger-related schemes. Well done 👏🏾
Does your child qualify for free school meals? Are you worried about keeping them fed over the February half-term holiday?
We have it covered - here’s a reminder that we’ll be funding vouchers once again➡️
🗣 Feb📍Kirklees Council
There is wider government support in place to support families and children with meals during February half term through the Covid Winter Grant Scheme, delivered by local authorities
We will be mapping out the support of local authorities at and I encourage all LA’s to share schemes as soon as they are finalised so we can direct those most in need.

We expect caterers to ensure our food standards are met and adhered to when lunch parcels are prepared.
Since 4 January schools have been able to provide local vouchers instead.
From next week the National Voucher scheme will resume.
“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.”
One thing I touched on with the Prime Minister was ways to course correct on the voucher scheme. If families can't access food consistently likelihood is they do not have access to a printer to print the vouchers at home. @10DowningStreet agreed to look into this.
We stand with @MarcusRashford in calling on Government to conduct an URGENT COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW into #FreeSchoolMeals policy across UK nations.
Sticking plasters & short term solutions will not suffice.
Now is the time to act.
100% behind this one ✊
