Leeds United players have donated 25,000 pounds ($33,000) to a campaign providing free school meals to children in Britain after being inspired by Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford’s efforts, captain Liam Cooper said.

Thursday, Rashford urged local businesses to tweet using the hashtag #endchildfoodpoverty, which would allow the 22-year old to locate them. 

Several have come forward to supply free school meals during half term in the United Kingdom.

Rashford forced a government U-turn in July when he won his battle to ensure free school meals during the summer holidays.

He then proposed extending the campaign for families receiving financial assistance from the government.

Parliament Wednesday rejected a Labour Party motion to extend free school meals until Easter 2021 from the cut-off before the half-term and winter holidays, prompting the England international to launch his campaign on social media.

Rashford has received widespread praise for his efforts, including from United’s rivals, with Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp and Chelsea boss Frank Lampard among those expressing their admiration.
