It's so important that the child food poverty conversation remains at the forefront of our thinking to support education and understanding. We all play a role in this and just listening could be the role that you play. A big thanks to talkSPORT and stay tuned.”
Head of talkSPORT Lee Clayton said: “Marcus Rashford has captured the attention and imagination of the nation with his campaign and the vital work of FareShare. FareShare is a force for good, supporting vulnerable communities all across the UK, especially as we approach a second national lockdown. Throughout our talkSPORT Takeover we will be highlighting how our listeners can get involved and support the charity to get more food to those who need it.”
