Tottenham Hotspur players and coaches have begun voluntary work preparing parcels of food and essential items at the food hub located at the club’s stadium.
Spurs are doing their bit to support the local community during these challenging times which the country currently finds itself in. The club have been operating their stadium food hub since March with some help from volunteers from the London Borough of Haringey to aid those in-need of basic living essentials.
The Spurs food hub is being used as a storage, packing and distribution base by Haringey Council and Edible London, who are working through the Connected Communities project to deliver balanced and nutritious food parcels to the most vulnerable people in the community during the coronavirus outbreak.
An official Tottenham Hotspur press release issued earlier today confirmed that players and coaches were beginning work at the facility with goalkeeper Chloe Morgan, forward Lucy Quinn and joint-manager Juan Amoros working their first shifts.
It has been reported that Tottenham Hotspur have delivered 3,536 packages of food and basic essentials to no less than 1,500 households during the Coronavirus pandemic so far, providing a real lifeline to families who are in desperate need for support.
Today saw Morgan, Quinn and Amoros helping to prepare and pack the latest batch of parcels which will be quickly distributed across the local community.
Speaking on her first day as a volunteer at the stadium food hub, striker Quinn said “It’s important to look after those who need help at this tough time.
“There’s a great sense of community at the hub and volunteering today has been a really rewarding experience.”
Haringey is one of the most deprived boroughs in London with the average disposal income being one of the lowest rates in the capital. Tottenham Hotspur as a club play a huge role within the local community and they are certainly rising to the challenge of helping those in need during the current crisis.
