Charlton team up with Supporters Trust to promote donations to Greenwich Foodbank

Charlton Athletic Supporters Trust are once again working with Charlton Athletic to promote donations to Greenwich Foodbank at this challenging time.

At Christmas Charlton supporters donated two van loads of non-perishable food before the games against Huddersfield Town and Hull City.

The Coronavirus crisis has only increased the stress on Greenwich Foodbank with an increase in demand coinciding with a decrease in the supply of food and toiletries

Alan Robinson of Greenwich Foodbank said: "Last week was a real test for us at the Foodbank. We had to deal with the challenges of:

• More people than ever needing food

• Food supplies dropping

• Volunteers in high risk groups

• Ensuring the referrer network remains in place

"The silver lining to this cloud, as always, is the community who always respond to make up the gaps."

There are a number of ways you can help:

Donate food items to your local collection point

Make a financial donation

Make a donation via Bankuet - whereby they purchase the food and deliver it to the Foodbank
