Players and staff from Luton Town Football Club have been reaching out to their local community and delivering food to elderly and vulnerable residents as part of the clubs “Hungry Hatters Moveable Feasts” initiative.
The scheme is also open to key workers and the club will be delivering food to residents within an eight-mile radius of its stadium, Kenilworth Road.
The clubs catering department has developed a variety of food packs that residents can order, with deliveries available to the elderly, vulnerable or to ‘key workers’ at a cost of £5.
The packages include a range of products from essential items such as bread, milk and eggs to more premium baskets which include pork loin steaks, beef mince and chicken thighs and drum sticks. There are a total of 6 packages to choose from, ranging from £8 to £48.
Luton Town Football Club says this is a non-profit initiative with prices that are either comparable or slightly higher than national supermarkets.
Members of staff have been calling some of our elderly or most vulnerable supporters over the last few days to have a chat and make sure that they are keeping well during the lockdown.
