Marcus Rashford, the Manchester United and England footballer, has set up a group to tackle child food poverty in the UK. But is it really his place to get involved? There are many different problems that people face – why should this particular issue get an unfair advantage over other good causes just because someone famous has become involved? Anyway, shouldn’t this be the Government’s job and, if they don’t do it, we can always vote them out? Or is there always a place for charitable work in our society?

This resource pack includes an article about Rashford and food poverty from The Week Junior newspaper, plus a sheet of activities to get children thinking, talking and writing about what the story means to them.
