Marcus Rashford received the title of MBE for his actions against hunger during the Covid-19 crisis.
During the health crisis that hit the world at the start of 2020, Marcus Rashford (24 years old) is committed to helping disadvantaged children who are unable to eat their fill in the absence of school canteens.
The England international (46 caps, 12 goals) had launched several campaigns with the aim of providing several thousand meals to young English people. In June 2020, he even published on his social networks an open letter to the British government, asking them to show humanity so that no child does not have enough to eat.
