Manchester United forward has raised over £20m for charity FareShare, to help distribute food for children who rely on schools for their daily meals, but are now home due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The England international has been stunned by the response to his appeal, with Tesco donating food worth £15m, Asda pledging £2.5m in cash and The Co-Op also providing £1.5m in food donations.
Ignore previous tweet, I got it wrong 🤦🏾 £150k raised for @FareShareUK means we are reaching 600,000 vulnerable children around the UK, amazing!! Thank you to everyone that has supported 👏🏾♥️— Marcus Rashford (@MarcusRashford) April 2, 2020
Leading supermarkets, Pret A Manger and Pizza Express have also contributed, while an incredible £160,000 has come from donations from the public.
The United star also revealed that he worked with FareShare for 12 months, and he grew up depending on the free meals provided in school.
