A spokesperson at 10 Downing Street (the residence of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom) said: "We previously decided that during the COVID-19 pandemic, we had expanded the scope of free school meals, but some schools were closed at that time. Now, where we are. It's different, the school is now reopened, and all students can now go back to school.
“During school holidays, the school will not provide meals to students for a long time and continuously. We believe that the best way to support a family during student holidays is the general welfare fund, rather than the school providing meals during the holidays. ."
