Tottenham Hotspur donate matchday food supplies to charity
The football season has been ground to a temporary halt due to the prevailing coronavirus pandemic that is spreading across the nation. With fixtures being rearranged and no clear idea of what to expect next, the season is currently in limbo.
The club were preparing for the crucial Sunday night fixture against Manchester United. With the match now called off, Tottenham Hotspur have decided to make the best use of an unexpected situation.
As posted on the official site, Tottenham have decided to donate a significant amount of food supplies intended for consumption at Sunday’s home Premier League match against Manchester United to the Felix Project. It is a London-based charity that aims to tackle food waste and hunger in the English capital.
Following the postponement of the professional games in England and the resulting cancellation of Sunday’s fixture at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium owing to the outbreak of COVID-19, the club has decided to deliver over 1,200 items of produce to the Felix Project to distribute to local good causes.
According to the report, these include 350 bottles of semi-skimmed milk, 460 fruit bags, 200 pasta pots, 40 packs of Tenderstem broccoli, 72 packs of baby gem lettuce, 14 boxes of tortilla corn chips and six boxes of flour buns among other items.
The Felix Project
The Felix Project is a London-based food waste charity set up in 2016 to tackle the twin problems of providing meals to children in need while also managing edible surplus food. According to the charity, 1.5 million adults in London struggle to afford to eat every day, while 400,000 children are at the risk of missing the next meal.
Operating in London for the past four years, the Felix Project collects surplus fresh, nutritious food to deliver to charities and schools, so that they can provide healthy meals and help the most vulnerable in our society.
