Jeremy Corbyn proudly supported our Christmas call – End Hunger, Feed a Family.
The leader of the Labor Party said that tens of thousands of families were going through a difficult period.
In a video message, he urged readers to come together to help them.
He said, "Christmas is the time when families come together to share the magic.
"But for over half a million kids, many of us take for granted will be a distant world while their families will have a hard time even offering basic necessities." . "
In a typical UK classroom, nine children live in poverty, according to figures from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
Mr. Corbyn said, "Austerity means that tens of thousands of families will face a difficult Christmas. Those who fight against the UCs' deployment by the Conservatives have yet to wait five weeks before receiving their payment. "
All funds raised in our call go to The Trussell Trust, the largest supplier of food banks in the country.
Mr. Corbyn, who wants to eliminate the need for food banks, said he provided about 1.5 million meals last year.
He added, "That's why I'm very proud to support Mirror's call.
"So, please, do everything you can to help the less fortunate that you have the merry Christmas they deserve."
