Bradford City fans are all set to support the City’s Foodbanks in a pledge to help
Bradfordians who have hit hard times and are struggling to feed their families.
Football fans across the country have been active in promoting awareness of foodbanks over the last 2 years and we have now been working with two foodbanks in Bradford.
We can all agree that foodbanks should not exist in a developed country that in 2019 is the 6th largest economy in the world but unfortunately the impact of austerity with declining household incomes, increased job insecurity, it’s detrimental effect to public services and benefits, it has increased the burgeoning wealth gap between rich and poor.
There is much poverty in the city of Bradford and we are working with two foodbanks; Bradford Central Trussel Trust Foodbank, and Bradford Metropolitan to raise awareness of the poverty and inequality in the city with the view to having a food collection event on a matchday at Valley Parade. If it is popular we can run it periodically during the football season as fans of other clubs do.
