âSince the launch of Feed Our Pack, the support we have received from Wolves supporters and the city in general has been incredible,â says Ollie Locker, Food Poverty Project Manager at the Wolves Foundation.
âThe fans have had so many fundraisers and different local groups and businesses have come forward to offer their support which is helping the Foundation to have a truly positive impact on the people of Wolverhampton.
âFrom the start, the plans for Feed Our Pack were always to ask for food donations on a match day, and with the fans attending games again, we were able to organize a process where that is possible.
“Food donations can be made for the first time ahead of Monday’s game against Everton, and we look forward to being able to donate items to support Wolverhampton’s food bank network.”
Items can be brought to the Energy Angels Fan Zone booth located in the Wanderer parking lot behind the South Rim between 5:00 p.m. and kick-off at 8:00 p.m.

The Foundation was also able to maximize the impact of Feed Our Pack by partnering with the His ecclesial charity, which collects food and other products that can no longer be used or sold by distributors and passes them on to the local community.
