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.
