Club's foundation and Red Neighbours delivering over 850 parcels to the local community

Liverpool's official charity LFC Foundation and their community team Red Neighbours are supporting the Merseyside community this week by delivering more than 850 essential breakfast and lunch parcels to local schools and community hubs.

The LFC Foundation will be providing 500 packed-lunch parcels and 200 breakfast parcels to local families in need of extra support as part of Liverpool’s Unity is Strength community response work.

"It’s so important for us as a club and neighbour to support our local communities as much as possible during what is a very difficult time for many families," said Forbes Duff, Red Neighbours’ senior manager.

"Food poverty is a longstanding area of focus for Red Neighbours and during every half-term and summer holiday break we host breakfast clubs for hundreds of local families at Anfield, which sadly we can’t do this year.

"However, I hope our continued support, despite not being face-to-face, reminds our communities we are still here to help and support where we can.” 

The LFC Foundation’s parcels have been made possible thanks to funds donated by the Steve Morgan Foundation and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

More than £19,000 will be used to fund further parcels of food and essential items for the local community over the next four weeks. 

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, Liverpool, Red Neighbours and the LFC Foundation have donated over £300,000 to the North Liverpool Foodbank, which has provided 43,000 freshly-prepared free meals (1,000 per week) to support local families.

Vital aid

Liverpool are one of a number of clubs providing food to those in need in their local areas. 

Crystal Palace club chefs are making over 1,400 meals a week to help the vulnerable in south London, while Burnley's Community Kitchen is supporting families again during half-term.

Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Nuno Espirito Santo has donated £250,000 to the club's "Feed Our Pack" project addressing food poverty in the local community.
