Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford says a £10 menu created by chef Tom Kerridge will help people in need “wake up on Christmas morning happy”, according to the BBC.
The footballer, who was made an MBE for his food poverty campaigning, tasked Kerridge to create the menu due to his own memories of visiting the local food bank on Christmas morning.
He said he wanted families to create something special “together”.
The Christmas dinner, which includes turkey roll with stuffing and a tray bake of vegetables, will feed up to six people. And leftovers can be used for potato and carrot hash on Boxing Day.
The meals have been designed to cost less than £10 for families using the government’s Healthy Start vouchers, though Kerridge said in an instructional post on Instagram that anyone not using the vouchers would still only pay about £13 for the ingredients.
Rashford has said that growing up, his family “relied on the local food bank for our Christmas dinner”.
