"Hi. This isn't so much about me. But as York Food Justice Alliance. I was apart of a decision on BBC York Radio about Marcus Rashford campaign. How he has got the Gov to do a u-turn on helping during Covid lock down with child poverity. I do think it's a shame it take a celebratory to get the Gov to lissen when there so many charity and originations trying to do just this. The Gov has still messed up in many ways but at least some form of help has been issued to family's that would otherwise get free school meals. He hopes to now I crease the Heathly Start Voutures which is ovwr due to be increased anyway. Alomg side this we have still seen a massive increase of familys needing help to feeding their selfs and family's. There is no longer a steritpical customer we have many people asking for help from many differant backgrounds and life today. Our imcrease of food markets was was Surpose to be for holiday HUNGER tho I feel we are going to have to keep our extras two days open to keep up with the increase of demands. We are also finding it hard to get the amount of supplies in with a veriaity of stock to. It would be nice to see a decrease of people needing help before Christmas. "
