Middlesbrough Supporters Forum will be holding a collection for the Middlesbrough Foodbank at our home game against Hull City this Sunday (12pm).
The collection at our first home game of the season against Brentford in August proved to be hugely successful, with a record 512 Kilos of food and £450 in cash donated to the Middlesbrough Foodbank.
With the support of MFC, the Forum has once again arranged a donation point close to the North Stand Ticket Office for dry and non-perishable foods, or cash donations, to support the invaluable work the foodbank does in the town.
Middlesbrough Foodbank is part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by the Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
It provides three days of nutritionally balanced emergency food to local people who are referred in crisis.
Urgently needed items required include:
- Tinned vegetarian meals (macaroni cheese)
- Bottles of squash
- Tinned meat (e.g. chicken casserole, chicken in sauce, spag bol, ravioli)
- Tinned meat (ham, corned beef, spam)
- Tinned fish
- Tinned fruit
- Tinned custard
- Long life milk
Cash donations are also welcome to enable urgently needed items to be purchased.
