Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has been as one of TIME magazine’s ‘next 100 most influential people in the world’, which aims to celebrate emerging leaders.
It is a spin on the usual ‘TIME100’ annual list of the planet’s most influential figure, with Rashford recognised as part of a new generation of global leaders thanks to his tireless work to fight against food poverty in the United Kingdom.
Over the past year, Rashford has successfully lobbied the UK government to help feed children left even more vulnerable by the pandemic.

For many living in poverty, schools often provide a child’s only meal of the day, leaving many to go hungry during school closures and school holidays.
Rashford, who grew up in difficult circumstances himself, has first-hand experience of not always having enough food to eat and knows the importance of support programmes.

He has won the battle against the surface issue by ensuring that children across the UK have had access to food, but the 23-year-old has also vowed to keep working towards ending of child food poverty altogether.
Rashford is endorsed for his place in TIME100Next by Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton.
“By standing up for the most vulnerable in our society, and using his platform and influence to create positive change, Marcus inspired countless others to join him on this mission and cemented his status as a role model,” Hamilton wrote.
“In a year that showed us the power of working together toward a common goal, he was a galvanizing force behind uniting people across the UK in the effort to ensure that no child goes hungry. His determination, resilience and persistence have been truly inspiring. I cannot wait to see how he continues this important work.”
