Burnley FC in the Community calling for public to support world record food donation bid
and live on Freeview channel 276
The aim of the ambitious attempt, which will take place in the fan zone at Turf Moor on Saturday, is to collect enough bags to fill the seats at Turf Moor.
Visitors are being asked to bring at least one non-perishable food item (e.g. canned goods) on the day, where in return they will be treated to live cooking demonstrations, the chance to meet Bertie and Bella Bee, live music, and a host of other family fun activities.
"While we aim to break records on Saturday, we understand that the issue runs deeper. This is just the beginning of our journey, and in the coming months, we have exciting plans in store to tackle food insecurity even more comprehensively.”
Burnley FC in the Community Food Bank manager Nathan Norris added: “We are really excited about this event, and working with Max. Hopefully, as many people as possible get involved and we achieve a world record.”
The event will run from 10am until 3pm. Anybody unable to make it, but who would still like to contribute, can do so by donating to https://www.gofundme.com/f/Maxis-Million-Meals-Challenge
