Twitter reacts as Marcus Rashford gives an update on brilliant initiative
The initiative will now supply 3.9 million meals to vulnerable people all across the country. At a time like this, the effect the initiative will have on a number of people cannot be undermined.
He also went on to add that 150 new food businesses have signed up to donate food or divert surplus food.
The 22-year-old initially set a goal of raising £100,000 and feeding 400,000 children after partnering with the charity back in April. They have since vastly surpassed that target, with over £20m raised. (h/t Standard)
A hero on the pitch, the English international has shown he is a hero off he field as well. Rashford’s initiative will help a number of people all across the country.
Amidst the challenges faced on a daily basis, the fact that they now don’t have to worry about where their next meal will come from is a welcome sign.
A number of fans took to Twitter to give their views on the news. We take a look at a few of them below.
