Marcus Rashford and his mother volunteer at Manchester food bank

The Manchester United and England player says he has been ‘blown away’ by local businesses offering support for his free school meals campaign after MPs voted against extending the provision into the half-term and Christmas holiday.
Marcus Rashford visited the food bank charity FareShare in Greater Manchester where a new warehouse has been named after his mother, Melanie.
Earlier this month Rashford was awarded an MBE for his work in combating child food poverty during the Covid pandemic

    its a shame people still criticising rashford despite being on the forefront talking about child poverty which is a national issue and has raised awareness. rashford is a role model that kids need especially during a crisis

    Why doesn't Marcus give some of his £70k per week pay to feed the kids instead of asking the government?

    So why doesn't he donate his wage down to the national average wage if he feels so strongly about it?

    who's paying for these "free school meals"? Why don't the parents pay for the meals and if they can't its sounds like a financial problem and the child should be temporarily moved out till the parent can get into a stable financial position.

    Look at all these unwashed, lefty guardian readers buying into this BS, you scruffs get benefits to buy food for your brats, but no, prefer a sky subscription or a mobile, and want more taxpayers money.

    That's it, the rich don't understand because they haven't been through it. Bet they never had coat hangers as TV aerials neither. Fair play to this guy

    I think it's the parents responsibility to feed their children, not that of schools, or the state. I don't understand how with the multitude of benefits available how somebody would not be able to afford to feed their children? Actually I've seen inside pubs/betting shops, I understand it perfectly.

    Hold people accountable for their actions, if the kids aren't being fed it's down to social services.

    As I'm Arsenal fan, I truly respect Marcus Rashford of saying that government should provide free school meals for kids who are from poor backgrounds. Government are yet understand it!
