Marcus Rashford, Manchester United forward said he was overwhelmed with pride after the British government swung to support his urge to provide free school meals for needy children during the winter holidays.

During school holidays, Rashford has advocated for food vouchers for children who usually receive free meals during term time if welfare support is received by their parents.

Last month, parliament rejected the Labour Party motion to extend the free school meals campaign until next year’s Easter from the cut-off before the half-term and winter holidays.

Marcus Rashford said that on Saturday, he talked to Prime Minister Boris Johnson and was briefed about the plans of the government to provide additional funding of 170 million pounds ($220 million) to the campaign.

The 23-year-old mentioned in a statement to British media that so much more still needs to be done, and his immediate concern is the nearly 1.7 million children who miss out on free school meals as their family income isn't quite low enough.


He added that the intent shown today by the government is nothing but positive and it should be respected for that, the steps taken will improve the lives of nearly 1.7 million children in the United Kingdom,and that can only be celebrated.
