Rashford Stand For The Less Privilege

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford has taken his fight for low-income children to Twitter, where he’s building a coalition of vendors who will provide free school meals over the holidays.

Rashford hit out at the UK Government as a vote to extend free school meals over the holidays until Easter 2021 was defeated.

Though the motion failed, a number of businesses vowed on Friday to step up and provide free meals over the holidays – with Rashford retweeting many of the offers and including the location of the businesses.

After a day spent amplifying the voices of those pledging to help, Rashford posted a message of gratitude on Twitter

“I’m signing off with a feeling [of] pride tonight. The superstars of this nation lie in local communities. Even after taking the biggest hits you have wrapped your arms around your community to catch [these] children as they fell. I really can’t thank you enough, you’re amazing,” the forward wrote.

“To the Twitter community, keep sharing these posts via #endchildfoodpoverty[.] Every child should be going to bed tonight feeling like they DO matter. Overwhelmed and thankful.”
