Charity Shield Game
Picture Marvel Stadium full to the brim with diehard footy fans. From kids in their fave player guernseys to 90-year-olds hoping THIS will be the year a Premiership lands at their club…and everyone in between.
That’s the size of the crowd that Foodbank Victoria is feeding every day.
But with help from Tigers and Pies fans supporting the first ever Charity Shield game on Tuesday, 27 February, we can make a difference for that crowd of 57,000 Victorians a day relying on us for their next meal.
Last footy season, Foodbank put 23.9 million meals on tables of people doing it tough through our network of more than 500 charity partners and 1,000 schools across the state.
We also run fresh food markets and mobile supermarket buses in communities around the state so families doing it tough can come and collect enough fresh veggies, fruit and pantry staples for an entire week – for free!
Proceeds from the Charity Shield game ticket sales will help support Foodbank’s work. For every $1 we receive, we’re able to provide 2 meals for someone in need. It’s that simple.
