Rashford, recently awarded an MBE for his campaign work, took to Twitter after Neil Foden, the strategic head of Ysgol Dyffryn Nantlle in Penygroes, Gwynedd, warned parents the school cook would not give food to any pupil 'if their debt has not been cleared, or in the future, to children whose accounts do not have enough money to pay for lunch'.
Rashford said: 'Has the pandemic not taught us anything? Can we not be understanding? Come on now.'
He added: 'For many children, lunch at school is the only meal they'll get.'Surely even a footballer - never the brightest - must understand that you have to pay for things in life?
Mr Foden said a 'handful of pupils' had run up debts totalling close to £2,000, and explained the stance further in an interview with the BBC on Thursday.
That's, what, an hour of 'work' for the likes of Rashford? If he's so concerned why doesn't he offer to clear the debt?
While there has been some sympathy for the letter from some people, most of those who contacted local media condemned the move.
Well, of course - the vast majority who read this and thought 'Good for him!' have better things to do.
Another mother said on Facebook: 'Shocking. I was £6 in debt and only realised yesterday. I completely forgot as I've been so busy with opening a new shop, running a business and caring for 4 children it slipped my mind. Not once did the school my children attend message or phoned me. They understand parents are busy and this can happen sometimes. Glad my children don't have a head teacher like this.'
When you're running your business if someone 'forgets to pay' for your goods or services, I wonder what your reaction is...
Lauren Cleary said: 'Even if the parents are spending all of their income on TVs and cigarettes (like the mainstream media would love you to believe), it's still never ever the child's fault. Shameful - where's his duty of care?'
His duty of care doesn't cover freeloaders.
