Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and initial lockdown in March 2020, Derby County Football Club and its Community Trust have been supporting the efforts of the Derby Food 4 Thought Alliance by collecting donations of tinned and dried foods from Pride Park Stadium.
Efforts have seen an incredible number of donations made across the last 12 months which have helped to contribute to over 250,000 items of food which have been distributed across the city in that time frame.
As we approach the one-year anniversary of the first national lockdown on, the Derby Food 4 Thought Alliance are hoping to bring smiles to children across Derby this Easter.
As well as continuing to support families and households in need with the delivery of essential food parcels, they are also aiming to collect 15,000 Easter eggs to ensure every child in Derby receives one this year.
Derby County are backing their efforts to achieve this impressive total and the food donation hub, which has been in operation from the stadium since last April, will be accepting donations of Easter eggs every Thursday from 11am-2pm, at Pride Park Stadium’s Main Entrance.
Donations of other tinned and dried food goods will continue to be gratefully accepted and passed on to the Food 4 Thought Alliance for distribution.
