Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has raised over 150,000 pounds ($124,410) to ensure vulnerable children who rely on free school meals every day are still fed now schools are closed due to the coronavirus lockdown.

Rashford, who said he depended on free meals as a child, issued a rallying cry and asked people to donate, working with charity organisation FareShare that distributes food to schools and community centres.

Rashford’s initial goal of 100,000 pounds, that would serve 400,000 children, was quickly surpassed after people responded positively to the 22-year-old’s appeals on his social media channels.

Rashford confirmed that the donations reached 150,000 pounds which would feed 600,000 children.
