The 22-year-old England international has teamed up with charity FareShare to help children in the Manchester area after schools were closed.
And he revealed that his own childhood had inspired him to want to make a difference to the next generation.
“In the past I have done a lot of work in regards to children and when I heard about the schools shutting down, I knew that meant free meals for some kids that they are not getting at school,” Rashford told the BBC.
“I remember when I was at school I was on free meals and my mum wouldn’t get home until around six o’clock so my next meal would have been about 8 o’clock. I was fortunate, and there are kids in much more difficult situations that don’t get their meals at homes.”
Rashford said fundraising had gone well.
Manchester United and Manchester City have joined forces to donate to food banks in the area.
