The exclusive all-access BBC documentary will follow Marcus Rashford as he campaigns to raise awareness about child food poverty in the UK.
Rashford has previously spoken about his own experiences of child food poverty and the sacrifices he and his family faced while he was growing up.
The Premier League striker will learn about how child food poverty affects millions of children across the UK and how COVID-19 has exacerbated the issue.
Cameras will uncover the obstacles and successes Rashford has gone through to try and eradicate child food poverty in the UK permanently, including the pressure his campaign put on the UK Government to offer support to over 1.7 million children.
His life-changing work led to him being honoured with a Special Award at this year’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year, the panel recognising his exceptional accomplishments outside of football.
BBC Head of Commissioning for Documentaries, Clare Sillery, said: Everyone will be familiar with the Marcus Rashford we see on the pitch but this documentary will offer a deeper insight into the man himself.
“Through our access, we hope viewers will get to see just how passionate and determined he is about tackling child food poverty in Britain today.”
The documentary will air on BBC One on 21 December.
