Waterford FC is delighted to re-launch our partnership with Waterford Food Bank ahead of the 2024 season.

Similarly to 2023, the Waterford Food Bank will host a food collection at every Waterford FC home game at the RSC for the coming year, where they will be accepting donations of non-perishable foods such as cereals, rice, pasta, sauces, tea, coffee, soups, tinned goods, biscuits, etc.

Waterford FC invite all supporters attending games at the RSC in 2024 to support our partners at Waterford Food Bank by bringing along any of the above with them – even one item will make a huge difference!

Speaking on the re-launch of the partnership, Waterford FC Head of Community Colin Power said: “I am delighted that we have extended our partnership with Waterford Food Bank. While last year was a success with great support of the Foodbank from the fans, we want to try and expand on that this season. The work Karen, John and the volunteers do is so important, and we are delighted to help in anyway we can. A very important aspect for me is any donation goes directly to the people who need it.”

Karen Glancy of Waterford Food Bank also commented at the re-launch: “All the food that comes in will help the 260 families a week that we are currently supplying the food too. It’s an incredibly crucial role that Waterford Food Bank is playing in the community and we’re thankful to the support of Colin Power and the club. Waterford Food Bank is non-funded and non-profit charity organisation. We provide food parcels with fresh meat, vegetables, non-perishable goods, and diary to help the 260 families across Waterford every single week. It’s a rolling number so by the end of the year, we could have up to 3000 families, so the support of Waterford FC plays a massive part in this.”

Supporters can support the Waterford Food Bank by bringing non-perishable foods to games, where the Waterford Food Bank will be situated at the back of the Old Stand at the RSC up fans’ entrance to the ground on matchnight.
