I don't think anyone wants that to be true.

If it is true then they (the government) should take swift and severe action.

They should not try to bullshit their way out of it - because this Quango is largely comprised of their pals.

I stand to be corrected but if those pictures are true surely the whole site would be unanimous in agreement it's disgusting and insulting.

If I was given that the hapless delivery bloke would be taking it back to depot 'keistered'.

 

 

See above apparently it’s a fraction of what it was supposed to portray. But a thorough investigation needs to be instigated immediately and all the suppliers of this type of thing audited now. 
 

we have to look after the children. Irrespective of why they find themselves in the situation. They cannot fend for themselves

Even at £10.50 that's a piss-take.

How much to deliver it? Pack it? Store it? 
 

the flaw isn’t with the individual companies I don’t think (although some may well be greedy and probably will be). The flaw is with the scheme. 
 

We all could have told the government pay 10.50 for a box of food and it will be at best 6/7 quids worth.

but what is the solution? I certainly don’t know. Do you have any realistic ideas how to make it better?

No I think that is where the reporting is false. I am sure I heard on the wireless it is £15 per week per child so £15 ÷ 7 × 5 = £10.71. I could be wrong mind.

Still, when you scale up it was a crap offering and they have rightly apologised.

A footballer is doing all this

He's ace. Just seems dead calm about it all, non political, doesn't seem to get angry, just lays out the facts.

And still doing it on the pitch.

And he's what? 22?

An impressive young man.

They'll have bulk buying capabilities. You or I could buy the contents of that photo from the local shop for £5, so they invariably can get it for a lot less. There is no way on Earth that is acceptable for £10.50, including overheads. No way at all.

The solution is a simple one. Don't take the piss and attempt to maximise profits at the expense of kids getting some decent food.

That’s not a realistic solution unless you get a charity to do it and sadly it’s too big a task for any charity. 
 

who said it was acceptable? Please don’t put words in my mouth.

He’s lived the life. That makes a massive difference to understanding what these kids are going through and the challenges They face. 
 

there will be a few on here that can also empathize having been through it. Not saying it’s the be all and end all but it certainly helps. Like any situation I guess

I haven't put words in your mouth. I just said its not acceptable. Fuck me, you're paranoid.

Anyway, asking for a company to do a good deed without maximising profits. You say it's not realistic? Plenty of large companies have done 'charitable' things, especially since Covid kicked off.

Not every company can a afford to be charitable sadly. Some businesses are struggling  

your solution remains unrealistic sadly  otherwise the big supermarkets would be stepping in and doing it  who better placed they have stock , manpower and delivery capability. Why aren’t they being charitable and doing so do you think? Tell me what you think and I will ask one tomorrow see if your idea gains traction? 

and paranoid? 🤣 nah buddy just nah

I think its the hormones but looking at these food packages breaks my heart that this is what some children are having to eat. 

Nope it’s just grim mate .
 

i volunteer for a couple of local charities providing food support to poor families. You should see that state of some of the kids. Breaks my heart. Xmas eve I delivered 62 Xmas dinner packs to families in my local area. I bought 62 selection boxes and put one in with each box. All the families that charity support have  kids. It wasn’t much but it was something. 
 

just wish I could do more.
