His most recent award came on Tuesday where he was named BBC Sports Personality of the Year ceremony on Sunday night.
Rashford let out his plans off the pitch for 2021 after watching a documentary in honor of his work by the BBC.
The one-hour documentary ‘Marcus Rashford: Feeding Britain’s Children’ showed the United forward interacting with littlekids as he continues the fight to eradicate poverty and provide adequate for children in the United Kingdom.
The United star tweeted: “I don’t even know why I’m so sad watching this.
“I’m just really proud of how far we’ve come and thankful to the game of football for helping us out.
“2021 has to be the year of change and to commitment to combat child food poverty across the UK once and for all,” he tweeted.
“If 2020 has taught us anything it’s that any one of us could fall into unforeseen circumstances. Now is the time for action.
Rashford continued on his goals for next year: “We need a long term sustainable framework to catch children falling through the cracks. That has to be the goal of 2021.
“To restaurant owners who have had Christmas Day bookings cancelled, I can’t imagine what you are going through but if you have excess produce, consider putting that to good use to help our most vulnerable.”
