UK government votes against free meals for poorer children

The UK voted against giving children free school lunches in the holidays. There was an idea to give children a $20 food voucher every week. In the summer, a Manchester United footballer got the UK government to U-turn and give school lunches to poorer children. He wants this to happen again.

British people are angry. Many children will not eat lunch in the holidays. The UK leader said he would not U-turn. He said he "totally understands" hunger. People said this was not true because he is rich. People are also angry that COVID-19 workers in the UK get over $8,000 a day, but a child cannot get a free lunch.
