The Newcastle United Fans Foodbank will be having a collection of food before the game with Burton Albion on Wednesday Night.

Fans will be able to make donations at the usual pitch opposite NINE Bar behind the Gallowgate End on Strawberry Place from 5pm up until kick off time.

We are told by Foodbank organisers that they especially need:

Tea, Coffee, Sugar  Pasta / Cooking Sauces  Tinned Tomatoes  Easter Treats

The Newcastle West End Foodbank is the largest in the UK and works in collaboration with other Foodbanks across Tyneside. The Newcastle West End Foodbank distributes more than 1000 Food Parcels per week and they go to children and the disabled people.

People are at severe risk of hunger within our communities.

Please give what you can and help some of our fellow Geordies who in crisis situations.
