Fast-food giant McDonald’s donated a mega 1 million free school meals to kids as Marcus Rashford’s campaign picks up speed.
Moreover, the famous fast-food chain joined hands with the renowned campaign for kids, like Manchester United. Here, the ultimate aim revolved around assisting those families with struggling backgrounds and starving kids.
Ever since the UK government’s stance upon rejecting the Labour Party’s idea to feed kids during half-term, plenty of eateries are coming on board to help. This is a major deal as customer capacity and limited opening hour restrictions are already causing problems.
Meanwhile, McDonald’s is one of the largest scaled brands to come on board, announcing their involvement recently.
But what does their commitment actually include? Well, sources confirmed how McDonald’s will provide great funding for food poverty charities called FareShare.This is where England’s forward Rashford came on board to visit.
Here, he assisted in re-distributing foods to all those families that needed it the most.
On the other hand, the mega fast-food chain has already begun playing a proactive role.
And that’s because it has donated around a whopping 400 tons of food as well as 100,000 liters of milk.Their target aim includes charity organizations like FareShare and more. At the same time, the leading chain promises to help out with funds that will effectively assist them along the way.
The brand also aims to keep a check on making sure that the funds and foods reach those families that need it the most. Therefore, the actual partnership came in the form of an announcement via a tweet on Twitter. It claimed:
‘We are proud to announce our partnership with FareShare UK. We aim to provide around 1 million meals for families that need it the most. Our funding aims to target urgent redistribution over the next few weeks. And the aim is to help all of those that need it the most.’
This isn’t the first time that McDonald’s stepped up to the plate and helped others. In the past, it has always shown a proactive role in assisting and supporting those most in need.
