Providing food and education resources

Wolves combatting holiday hunger with the ambitious Feed Our Pack initiative.

In January, the Wolves Foundation launched their Feed Our Pack initiative, with the aim of helping to reduce the effects of food poverty and to support residents of Wolverhampton affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Funded by a £250,000 grant from the Premier League PFA Community Fund and a personal donation from head coach Nuno Espirito Santo, the activity supports local food banks and ensures children most in need receive meals outside of term-time to combat "holiday hunger".

Will Clowes, head of the Wolves Foundation, said: "The simple objective is to increase the volume of food distributed through the foodbanks.

"Then from a school point of view, it's working closely with families during these difficult times, to make sure they have everything they need.

"Not only food, but education resources and physical activity opportunities, when restrictions allow."

Club captain and Wolves Foundation ambassador Conor Coady helped staff with the assembly of food packages at Molineux and said: "This goes to show how important this football club is in the city and how important the city is to the football club.

"We are lucky to get to play football during the pandemic when other people can’t go to work and can’t do things that they want to do.

"We understand the privileges that we have got, so if there is anything we can do to give back, like with Wolves Foundation and this project, then we will always do our best to help."
