MARCUS Rashford took it upon himself to share a number of cafes and restaurants offering free meals for school children over the half-term.
The Man Utd and England striker, 22, continued to campaign for an end to child hunger this morning after MPs rejected a Labour motion to extend free school meals over the school holidays.
The children’s meal champion began tweeting the details of more than 20 locations across Britain last night and continued to list them on his account this morning.
They include Bolton, Liverpool, Wirral, Sheffield, Wigan, Bristol and Devon, Whitley Bay, Staffordshire, Nottingham, Stevenage, Teesdale , Anglesey, Whitehaven, Watford and County Durham.
Marcus also let parents know which councils are offering free meal vouchers in a generous bid to help parents out.
Yesterday, the footie ace helped out at FareShare in Manchester – a charity aimed at relieving food poverty across the UK which the footballer has already raised £20million for.
It came after Tory MPs made kids feel like they “don’t matter,” according to the star, after he lost his bid to get the nation’s most vulnerable youngsters free school meals this winter.
MPs rejected a Labour motion to extend free school meals over the school holidays until Easter 2021 by 322 votes to 261, majority 61.
Marcus shared a lengthy message on Twitter after the vote, pleading with the Government to resume talks on the matter.
“A significant number of children are going to bed tonight not only hungry but feeling like they do not matter,” he said.
“We must stop stigmatising, judging and pointing fingers. Our views are being clouded by political affiliation. This is not politics, this is humanity.”

He called on No10 to “sit around the table” again to come up with a new plan, adding: “I don’t have the education of a politician – many on Twitter have made that clear today – but I have a social education having lived through this.”
He finished the post by writing: “These children are the future of this country. They are not just another statistic.
“And for as long as they don’t have a voice, they will have mine. You have my word on that.”
