Footballer and food poverty campaigner Marcus Rashford MBE and the End Child Food Poverty Taskforce have launched a new website to support children and vulnerable families over the Christmas holidays.

The End Child Food Poverty website includes a map that allows people to find help in their local area, as well as information on how people can donate and volunteer this winter.

Local authorities, businesses, food banks, charities and sporting organisations have all signed up, presenting their offers throughout the winter period and beyond. 

The initiative has been supported by food charities, supermarkets and other food suppliers and other organisations.

This is a new website so the information on it is likely to grow over time. Especially as Marcus Rashford is encouraging anyone offering support to register on the website. Some of the resources listed will also be closed over the Christmas period but may be able to offer help to families struggling with food poverty in the New Year.
