Zayn Malik has written an open letter to British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to plead for free school meals for all children from families on Universal Credit.
The former Once Direction star wrote, “I hope the government does what’s right and makes the changes that are needed. Parents are already doing everything they can, but Government support is desperately needed. No parent should have to make impossible decisions like whether to buy food, turn on the heating, or go into debt.”
Zayn grew up in inner city Bradford, West Yorkshire and was one of the many children who relied on free school lunches.
