The AFC Wimbledon Foundation are encouraging the local community to support the Wimbledon Foodbank this summer.

The Wimbledon Foodbank provides a vital service to families in need and is currently experiencing a shortage of food stocks. With 1 in 5 of the UK population living below the poverty, the strength and support of local communities is needed now more than ever. The AFC Wimbledon Foundation is proud to be supporting such a vital and worthwhile cause, and invites fellow Wombles to do the same.

Foundation Director Philip Rudling commented: “Summer food poverty is a big issue for local families in need in our local area and we hope club supporters can be as generous as always.”

Foundation staff will be available prior to the Sunderland game (12.30pm – 2.30pm) on 25th August 2018, where they’ll be manning a collection point outside the back bar at the Cherry Red Records Stadium.

All non-perishable food items will be accepted, including:

·         Cereal

·         Soup

·         Sugar

·         Rice

·         Pasta sauce

·         Beans

·         Tinned meat

·         Tinned vegetables
