MARCUS RASHFORD “These children matter. These children are the future of this country. They are not just another statistic. And for as long as they don't have a voice, they will have mine.”
A QUOTE FROM A PARENT “Hi I’m a single mum of 3 on benefits. I also have a son who has autism, it is embarrassing to ask but do you charge any money for food? I’m in West London. Please keep this confidential. Will you be able to deliver?”

A Statement from Randeep S Lall, CEO of NishkamSWAT
“We know kids are hungry. We know they can't afford food. How does one’s conscience allow for us to forget about them during the school holidays? Our next generation are going to be running this country. We need to take our responsibility seriously to look after them.
At NishkamSWAT we treat all children as our own therefore we are pledging unlimited vegetarian meals for all children in need.
Your child will not go hungry.”
