Marcus Rashford has formed a taskforce with some major food brands to help tackle hunger among children, the Manchester United and England forward said Tuesday.

Rashford had earned widespread praise after the 22-year old successfully campaigned for school food vouchers to be provided over the summer holidays in Britain, revealing that he had relied on such support as a boy.

Announcing the child food poverty group that includes Aldi, Asda, Tesco, Deliveroo, Sainsbury’s and Kellogg’s among others, Rashford wrote an open letter to parliament endorsing three policy recommendations of the National Food Strategy.

The points include the expansion of free school meals to children whose families are on universal credit, expansion of holiday provision to all children on free school meals, and increasing the value of Healthy Start vouchers.

Rashford had also helped to raise around 20m pounds ($26.9m) with charity Fareshare UK to supply meals to struggling families during the Covid-19 pandemic.
