The businesses that stepped in to provide free meals for children

Across the UK thousands of café owners and other catering businesses listened to the appeal from football start Marcus Rashford and took up the challenge of feeding schoolchildren during the school holidays. The businesses stepped in to fill a gap left when the government voted down a motion to provide 1.4 million disadvantaged children in England with £15-a-week food vouchers during half-terms and holidays until Easter 2021 

The volunteer group All Of Us Together has created an interactive map of all the businesses offering meals.  It said at least 20,026 meals were provided by 411 organisations in the first few days of the week.
