Members of the Luton Town commercial team paid a visit to our Club Charity of the Year - Luton Foodbank yesterday, volunteering for the morning to help pack food parcels.
The team, including commercial manager David Hoskins, Hon. Life Vice President John Buttle and colleagues Viv and Hannah were welcomed by board members and staff of the Foodbank, who showed them the ropes and how to put together a nutritious food parcel to go out to their clients.
Watch our video below and find out more about what happens at the Luton Foodbank, and how you can help:
Each food parcel contains 21 pieces of staple food - enough to feed an adult for three days.
All of the food that is distributed via the Foodbank comes from donations from the public, through collection points such as those found at Kenilworth Road. The parcels are then goes to people in desperate need, to help tide them over with enough food to keep them going through difficult periods in their lives.
Happy Harry was on hand too - helping to launch the Foodbank's 'Reverse Advent Calendar' campaign. It's a simple idea, but one that everyone can get involved in on the run-up to Christmas. Simply download your calendar by clicking here. Then on each day before Christmas, you can help by finding a small food donation which you can drop off with us or at one of the drop-off points.
With the winter months ahead of us, this is an important time of year for Luton Foodbank, so please do get involved by donating food, money or your time as a volunteer to help them.
Our match against Fleetwood Town on December the 8th is the Foodbank's dedicated match, when the Hatters will run out in their Foodbank branded shirts. Volunteers will be at Kenilworth Road collecting donations, and another shirt auction will take place in the week after the match - so please do get involved.
