Foundation 92 has today provided their support to Salford Foodbank by donating a considerable amount of Kellogg’s cereal to be distributed as part of their food parcels this winter.
This club’s official charity has dropped off £3,000 worth of breakfast goods as the Foodbank approaches one of their busiest times of the year.
In 2023-24 we have been working closely with Salford Foodbank, including Salford staff volunteering time every week to help with the warehouse operations.
In addition club partners and sleeve sponsor Salford Van Hire have donated more than 600 match tickets to be distributed with food packages, as well as making a festive contribution.
Salford Foodbank Assistant Manager, Paul Harris, said:
“The support is incredible at this time of year and will be huge to help us get through Christmas, and the rest of the winter as well. As we approach Christmas and the temperatures drop we see a huge increase in demand and it’s a really tough time of year.
“The support that we’re getting from Salford City Football Club with their volunteers is great, and this donation from Foundation 92 and Kellogg’s will keep our stock levels high so we can provide throughout the winter.”
Donna Hennessy, Head of Education at Foundation 92, added:
“Supporting the Community in this way is what the Foundation is all about! Our missions and values are to serve the community in whatever way it needs. Thanks to Kellogg’s Manchester and the great partnership we have built, we have been able to donate £3,000’s worth of Kellogg’s cereal, alongside Salford City Football Club, to Salford Foodbank for those who need it most over the winter months.
“Hopefully this will help people to know they don’t have to choose between food and turning the heating on or joining those that celebrate Christmas.”
Creative and Engagement Manager at Salford, Andrew Gordon, finished:
“We’re extremely grateful to Foundation 92 and to Kellogg’s for making this donation, which will significantly help Salford Foodbank during one of the most challenging times of the year for them, and to Salford Van Hire for their continuing support.
“Our own staff are enjoying volunteering their time to help out in the warehouse, and it’s these sort of collaborative initiatives that help others which make me proud of our City!”
