Marcus Rashford Is Continuing His Campaign To Ensure Britain's Children Get Fed

Marcus Rashford Is Continuing His Campaign To Ensure Britain's Children Get Fed

Despite being knocked back by the government, Marcus Rashford is not stopping his fight to feed Britain's children.

MPs voted overwhelmingly (322 to 261) against free school meals being available for underprivileged kids during school holidays and it's led to mass uproar as many are left puzzled as to how feeding children is not deemed a priority in these trying times.

The line from education secretary Gavin Williamson was: "Free school meals are and always have been about supporting children with a meal to help them when they're at school or currently at home learning. But it is our support through universal credit and our comprehensive welfare system that supports families."

Rashford was left in "despair" at the news after all the hard work he had done to force a government u-turn on the issue in the first place.

But even after receiving an MBE to highlight his incredible efforts, Rashford is continuing his campaign.

Not only has he spent time at a food bank charity, using the power of social media, the 22-year-old has been sharing a whole host of local business and restaurants across the country who are offering free meals or going above and beyond in other ways in the October half-term.

Manchester United Star Marcus Rashford Launches Book Club To Get Young People Reading

Just scroll through the Manchester United striker's Twitter and you'll see the businesses near you that are making a difference.

Rashford is quite rightly receiving praise for the inspirational work he has put in but this not a PR job for him. Having received free school meal vouchers as a youngster while his mum worked to put food on the table, he cares passionately about the subject.

When he's not banging in winning goals against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, Rashford is fighting the good fight and for that we can only commend him.
