- Marcus Rashford has continued his kind gesture in his free meals for the needy
- The Man United star who fed 2 million people in the past month revealed another million will benefit from the program

Marcus Rashford is set to feed 3 million people who are in need in Manchester amid the global pandemic.
The Manchester United striker has vouched to feed more families as the days go by during the lockdown period.
The England international in the past month raised funds to feed 2 million people and has now reached another milestone, adding another million to it.
"Guys, I have AMAZING news!!
"We had a goal that by end of June @fareshareuk would be able to supply 3million meals to vulnerable people across the UK.
"TODAY we have met the financial goal to provide these meals. Thank you all SO much for the support.
"And whilst I’m celebrating this, there is SO much more to do.
"Trust me when I say, I will keep fighting until no child in the UK has to worry about where their next meal is coming from.
"This is England in 2020 and families need help," the forward tweeted.
Supporters heaped praises on the 21-year-old for his kind gesture, calling him an absolute brilliant human with the heart of gold.
Rashford explained that he also benefitted from a free feeding program while he was growing and he took it upon himself to replicate the kindness to the needy.
“My mum worked all day every day when I was growing up to make sure I had at least one meal on the table every night.
“I needed Breakfast Club and free school meals otherwise I didn’t eat until 8/9pm.
“Not every child is fortunate enough to get that evening meal.
“So, to give this campaign another boost and for us to reach a lot more children than we currently are, I’m doubling my personal donation to FareShareUK," Rashford said last month.
