Everton Football Club is calling upon the generosity of supporters ahead of today's home game against West Ham United by asking them to bring donations to a food bank to help those less fortunate across the city.
Everton in the Community staff will be on hand to collect food and toiletries, which will be distributed at the People's Picnic at Goodison Park after the match.
The food bank will be located in the Fan Zone in the Park End car park.
Launched last season by the Club, the People's Picnic assists local families who have fallen on hard times and helps some of the city's most deserving groups, including participants from a wide range of Everton in the Community programmes, as well as a number of local charities.
The events offer local people the opportunity to enjoy a free hot meal, a game of bingo, a quiz and musical entertainment, and also take home a selection of supplies from the Blues' food bank.
Any items left over from the People's Picnic will be donated to a local food bank and various Merseyside charities supported by Everton in the Community.
The food items required include:
Dry products, such as rice, mashed potato and pasta
Tinned products, such as meats, pies, stews, chilli, tuna, vegetables, beans, spaghetti and soup
Packet products, such as breakfast cereals, biscuits, long life milk, long life fruit juice, sugar and teabags
Toiletries, such as toothpaste, deodorant, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner
Warm clothing, such as padded jackets and sweatshirts
Rising costs of food and fuel, combined with static income, high unemployment and changes to the benefits system are causing more and more people to access food banks for help.
It is believed that around 13 million people live below the poverty line in the UK, and in the last year alone food banks have fed 346,992 people nationwide. Of those helped, 126,889 were children.
