Liverpool FC's official partner, NH Foods Ltd, visited North Liverpool Foodbank last week to make a generous donation to its foodbank collection.

Representatives from the Japan-based food manufacturer headed to St Andrew's community network, where they learnt about the vital work it does in the local area before presenting staff and volunteers with 420kg of produce.

LFC's director of communications, Susan Black, said: "NH Foods shares our club values in terms of supporting local communities, and we’re grateful for their ongoing backing of Red Neighbours and the North Liverpool Foodbank.

"This donation will be used to make vital three-day emergency food parcels for local families in crisis and we can’t thank NH Foods enough for their generous support."

NH Foods Ltd was announced as an official LFC partner in April this year and immediately pledged its ongoing support to the club’s Red Neighbours programme and the North Liverpool Foodbank.

NH Foods Ltd will make regular food donations and financial contributions over the course of its three-year deal with the club.

As part of its dedication to tackle food poverty, Red Neighbours backs the Fans Supporting Foodbanks initiative and hosts foodbank collections at all home games at Anfield.

Supporters attending the game can drop off any non-perishable items at the foodbank collection points, which are located next to the Family Park on Anfield Road, inside the Anfield superstore on Walton Breck Road and within Homebaked bakery on Oakfield Road.

All collected items are donated to the North Liverpool Foodbank and made into emergency food parcels for local people in crisis, including those in the club's surrounding postcodes of L4, L5 and L6.
