Feed Our Pack

Wolves Foundation have launched Feed Our Pack, an initial £500,000 project that aims to help reduce the effects of food poverty and support residents of Wolverhampton who have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The project, which will run for an initial three-years, has been made possible by a £250,000 grant from the Premier League PFA Community Fund and a generous personal donation of £250,000.

Feed Our Pack will be supporting selected foodbanks in the city, with the aim of increasing the volume of food being distributed to meet increased demand caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, along with combatting holiday hunger by providing a programme of food, sport and education to local children during school holidays.

The project will require future financial support, with fundraising events planned when it is safe to do so, as well as opportunities for Wolves supporters to get involved with food donations and volunteering, and anyone wishing to donate to Feed Our Pack can do so now via Just Giving.

In 2021:

1920 Food parcels for families in crisis

101 Children’s activity camps delivered

690 children attended holiday camps

29,000 meals provided
