25 Oct ONE FAN, ONE CAN!
The Huddersfield Town Foundation and the Huddersfield Town Supporters Association (HTSA), â€˜Fans for Foodbanksâ€™ initiative returns on Saturday as part of their new Foodbank Fortnight initiative!
The â€˜Fans for Foodbanksâ€™ appeal returns to the John Smithsâ€™ Stadium on Saturday 26 October for the game against Barnsley.
The Huddersfield Town Foundation and HTSA are currently facilitating a Foodbank Fortnight which concludes this weekend.
Foodbank Fortnight included National Food Day on 16 October 2019 and represents a
time to generate awareness and create a call for action to achieve better nutrition and zero hunger by educating people on healthy diets!
The Huddersfield Town Foundation encouraged local businesses to sign-up and hold a foodbank collection point within their premises for the fortnight with Louise Woollard Financial, Paxman Cooling, Brewfitt Ltd, One 17 Design, Maze 8, Core Facility, Stafflex and Simpson Wood Charted Accountants all joining in!
The â€˜One Fan, One Canâ€™ campaign for the â€˜Fans for Foodbanksâ€™ initiative has collected 14,000 items since launch!
This has enabled the local foodbanks to provide a weeksâ€™ worth of food for over 325 families!
The Huddersfield Town Foundation and HTSA would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to fans who support this campaign for their generosity.
Supporters are urged to bring donations to the Barnsley â€˜Fans for Foodbanksâ€™ collection, to continue making a beneficial impact for those in need.
â€˜Fans for Foodbanksâ€™ donations for the Barnsley fixture will be donated to The Welcome Centre, Huddersfield to continue making a positive difference in our local community.
There will be three collection points at the John Smithâ€™s Stadium for supporters to make their donations; one at the Stadium Health & Fitness Club entrance, one by the players entrance, near the South End of The Core Stand and an additional collection point for corporate guests inside the John Smithâ€™s Stadium reception entrance.

The branded bins will be in situ from 1pm up until kick-off and fans are asked to bring along any long shelf life food they wish to donate â€“ unfortunately, we cannot accept fresh foods.
