With two home fixtures in the space of four days, Everton is encouraging supporters heading to Goodison Park to make a food donation to Fans Supporting Foodbanks.
As it is ahead of every match at Goodison, the group’s unmissable purple donation van will be in situ in the Fan Zone behind the Sir Philip Carter Park Stand for the visits of Newcastle United (Thursday 7 December) and Chelsea (Sunday 10 December). Supporters can access the van via Goodison Road.
Match attending Blues are encouraged to donate non-perishable goods or a variety of dry products, such as rice or pasta, tinned foods, including tomatoes and tuna, or non-perishable packets such as breakfast cereals, biscuits, long life milk, coffee, tea, fruit juice, sugar, and snack bars. Toiletries and children’s nappies are also gratefully received.
Since its creation by Dave Kelly, Ian Byrne MP and Robbie Daniels eight years ago, Fans Supporting Foodbanks has received the backing of both Everton and Liverpool football clubs, supporters of both
teams and the wider community.
Fans of many other clubs have also been inspired to set up similar initiatives, with Fans’ Supporting Foodbanks campaigns across the country using hashtags such as #HungerDoesntWearClubColours and everybody has a #RightToFood to promote the cause.
If you are not attending either match but would like to contribute, charitable donations can be made via Fans Supporting Foodbanks’ GoFundMe page by clicking here.
