Footballer Marcus Rashford has been retweeting businesses across England who are offering to feed school children over the holidays.

After the government voted down a motion to extend free school meals during the half term holiday, a number of businesses across the country have offered to plug the gap by offering free food to kids.

Marcus Rashford, who led the initial campaign to have free school meals extended for children over the summer holidays, has been retweeting all the businesses who are offering their help.

This is the list at the time of writing, though rolling updates can be found on Marcus Rashford's Twitter feed here. A number of councils have also promised to provide meals throughout the half term.
