Ozil provides free school meals for Barnet school

The campaign of Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford to provide free food during school holidays for those born to parents below the breadline has captured the imagination of the country, and the Arsenal midfielder has got involved in his local area.

Around 70 meals were delivered to the school this week, complete with Ozil’s logo on the box as the school closes for the October half-term.

The 32-year-old has long been known for his charitable efforts with children, with his agent last year saying that he had paid for over 1,000 operations for ill children, along with efforts to feed homeless refugees in Syria and Turkey, the nation of his descent.
