United Kingdom Government have rejected the proposal of Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford to have poor school children fed freely in half-term and during Christmas.

The England international has taken the child food poverty campaign upon himself and he has gotten supports from many people.

Twenty charities and key names in the food industry are also said to have stand behind Marcus Rashford on his project.

In July this year, Marcus Rashford won the battle against the United Kingdom Government who were forced to do what the Manchester United star wanted for the children.

But according to the latest report on Sky Sports, Marcus Rashford is not lucky this time around as the Government have kicked against his proposal.

A Government spokesperson explained below.

"We took that decision to extend free school meals during the pandemic, when schools were partially closed during lockdown. We are in a different position now with schools back open to all pupils.
"It's not for schools to provide food to pupils during school holidays. We believe the best way to support families outside of term times is through Universal Credit, rather than schools subsidising meals."

However, Marcus Rashford has made it clear that he will continue his fight towards making the children in the United Kingdom happy.
