Everton stars Alex Iwobi and Moise Kean have learned about the incredible impact of the Fans Supporting Foodbanks initiative — and the generosity of Evertonians — by helping out at a Liverpool centre that supports more than 250 people with emergency food parcels each week.

Ahead of Wednesday's Merseyside derby, both Everton and Liverpool are encouraging supporters heading to Anfield to drop off donations of non-perishable goods for local foodbanks ahead of kick-off.

Fans Supporting Foodbanks was set up by local Everton and Liverpool supporter groups in conjunction with the North Liverpool Foodbank, Anfield Breckside Community Centre, Unite in the Community and the Trussell Trust, to help combat food poverty.

The North Liverpool Foodbank in Clubmoor provided 90 tonnes of food to local people last year, with as much as 25 per cent of the total donations made to the centre coming via collections on matchdays at Goodison Park and Anfield.

Mr Peacock said: “The work of the Fans Supporting Foodbanks is really important to us.

Kevin Peacock, Chief Executive at St Andrew's Community Network, the organising body for North Liverpool Foodbank, shared the startling figure that last year the 11,000 people were helped by the centre - about 40 per cent of whom were children.

It makes up 25 per cent of all the food that's donated to us and we give that food as emergency food parcels to people who need it.
