Manchester City and Manchester United have donated a combined £100,000 to help food banks in Greater Manchester meet increased demand from vulnerable people as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

This is a new cooperation between the MCFC and MUFC Fans’ Foodbanks to launch a fundraising appeal in response to the impact of the coronavirus, each club will donate £50,000 to the Trussell Trust.

The Trussell Trust support a network of over 1,200 food bank centres, including 19 in the Greater Manchester area which will be the beneficiaries of this donation.

The donations will help local food banks increase capacity and compensate for the temporary loss of food donations on matchdays through the MCFC Fans’ Foodbank Support and MUFC Fans’ Foodbank.

A fantastic initiative and that it was done by both clubs is so much better.

Well done Manchester clubs!
