Highly successful ‘Fans for Foodbanks’ initiative continues at the Brighton match
- ‘Fans for Foodbanks’ donation bins will be placed around the John Smith’s Stadium and PPG Canalside
- Town Foundation and HTSA team up for successful season-long initiative
- Supporters can donate long shelf life food
The Town Foundation, in partnership with HTSA, urge fans to continue to show their support for the ‘Fans for Foodbanks’ initiative at the weekend’s Premier League fixture against Brighton & Hove Albion.
Launched at the end of the 2017/18 campaign, the initiative has continued into this season, and fans resumed their incredible support from the first game against Chelsea.
Supporters are invited to help the community via donations of long shelf life food at this weekend’s match.
To donate, fans are asked to place the provisions in the branded bins located around the John Smith’s Stadium and PPG Canalside.
The Welcome Centre will appreciate any donation, but currently has shortages in:
- Meat paste
- Fish paste
- Long life milk
- Tinned fish
- Tinned meat meals
- Stock cubes
The Welcome Centre is also putting together packs for Christmas and is asking for the following donations:
- Gravy granules
- Large tins of ham
- Mince pies
- Family packs of biscuits
- Tinned sponge pudding
- Selection boxes
- Christmas treats
The branded bins will be placed around the Stadium from 1pm up until kick-off and fans are asked to bring along any long shelf life food they wish to donate – unfortunately we cannot accept fresh foods.
There are six Foodbanks located around the John Smith’s Stadium for this weekend’s game:
- Three at the South End of the Revell Ward Stand
- Two near the Gym Entrance by the Fantastic Media turnstiles
- One by the South Stand home turnstiles
There will also be a bin located at PPG Canalside, whilst supporters can take items to Club Partner Thornhill Dental.
More than 2,000 donations were made by Huddersfield Town supporters last season, backed by HTSA’s ‘Fans for Foodbanks’ campaign last season.
