We will welcome representatives from the Rochdale Foodbank to the Crown Oil Arena this Saturday as Charity Match-Ball sponsors.
Rochdale Foodbank is a charity based on South Parade in the town centre, which opened its doors in November 2012 and exists to provide food to anyone in crisis who are struggling financially and unable to feed themselves.
There are over a hundred volunteers who give up their time each week and undertake tasks from staffing the warehouse to filling up food boxes, from chatting to customers to inputting data on the computer. Last year they fed 4,943 adults and 2,169 children who would otherwise have gone hungry.
This Saturday, there will be two boxes – one in the Dale Bar and one in the Club Shop – where supporters can drop off food donations.
Currently, they are short of a number of items, including:
Semi-skimmed milk (UHT) 1 litre
Tinned of packet custard
Instant coffee (jar)
Long life fruit juice
You can find a comprehensive list on their website > https://rochdale.foodbank.org.uk/give-help/donate-food/
If you would like to know more or want to get involved please get in touch either by telephone 01706 713 701 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
