Manchester United and England national team star striker, 22 years old Marcus Rashford received a fine recognition from the Queen on Friday Elisabetilta.
Rashford has used his position in public to campaign to secure school meals for vulnerable children. As a result of Rashford’s work, the British government guaranteed children free meals during the restrictions caused by the coronary pandemic and school closures, in collaboration with large supermarkets and food brands.
The government outlined distributing food vouchers to vulnerable families in March, but only until the summer holidays arrive. However, Rashford’s open letter to board members prompted the board to reverse its decision, and the distribution of coupons continued throughout the summer. During the summer holidays, food vouchers were used by around 1.3 million English children, with support of around £ 15 a week.
The Queen rewarded Rashford with membership in the British Empire (MBE, Member of the Order of the British Empire).
The reward is associated with the Queen’s birthday celebrations. The list of laureates will normally be published around Elizabeth’s birthday in June, but this year the occasion was postponed so that those who deserved in the fight against the corona could be nominated.
– Let’s stand together to ensure that no British child has to go to bed hungry. As I have said several times before, the fact that access to food is never the child’s fault, Rashford said in a statement thanking the honor.
Rashford also said he hopes to be able to speak directly to the prime minister now Boris Johnsonilleso that food aid can continue in the autumn.
