Charlton fans will once again be able to donate to Greenwich foodbanks at two home games in December to help locals in need over Christmas.

The club joined forces with Fans Supporting Foodbanks last Christmas providing more than 1,000 meals for local people.

This year Charlton Athletic Supporters Trust, who supported last year's activity, will work with the two organisations and will coordinate the matchday activity.

Supporters will be able to donate non-perishable food at Charlton’s home games against Hudderfield Town (December 10th) and Hull City (December 13th).

Donation points will be in the car park from 6.15pm on both evenings.

The items collected will be given to Greenwich Foodbank, who operate eight foodbanks in the borough, and are in desperate need during the Christmas period.

Alan Robinson of Greenwich Foodbank said: "We are very pleased to hear that Charlton Athletic are once again going to host a donation site at The Valley to enable fans to make contributions to our food stock. During the summer the requirement for our service was so high that we very nearly ran out of supplies so the knowledge that Charlton fans will be generously donating next week is a great boost to our confidence that our supply will keep up with the ever increasing demand, particularly at this busy time of year."

What is non-perishable food?

Non-perishable foods have a long shelf life and don't require refrigeration. Examples include cereals, rice, long life milk or canned meat or fish. Please note that the foodbank currently has plenty of beans and pasta but is in great need of tinned fruit, tinned carrots, tinned peas, long-life fruit juice and tinned rice/custard.
