"Why don't I stop at football". Marcus Rashford writes in The Spectator, the oldest weekly in the world. The Manchester United striker, very active on the social front enough to be awarded the MBE recognition during the lockdown, explained why he considers this commitment necessary: ​​"When my community had nothing to call its own, it always found something kind to I am a product of their compassion, their drive and their willingness to give me more than what was at my door. I would do that community and my family a disservice if I did not use my platform to speak on behalf of millions of people whose voices are not heard.

The shoulder injury gave me plenty of time to think. While I wish I could say that significant progress has been made in stabilizing families suffering from food insecurity across the UK, the reality is that it has gotten much worse, 27% more than in the pre-pandemic period. In fact, you could fill 27 Wembley stadiums with the 2.5 million children who are struggling to know where their next meal will come from today. Low-income families now face additional deadlines, whether it be the end of leave or the cut in social security.
