Unusual grub with FoodCycle at Fratton Park Pompey match

Have your say

FOOTBALL fans are in for a culinary treat at this weekend’s game with Northampton.

Portsmouth Football Club and the charitable organisation Pompey in the Community have teamed up with the charity FoodCycle, which tackles food waste, food poverty and social isolation.

From a stall in Anson Road, Fratton, volunteers will be selling smoothies, which you blend yourself using pedal power, and veggie burgers from 1pm. All the food is made from surplus stock from local supermarkets.

Colin Farmery, Pompey’s head of inclusion, said: ‘When FoodCycle approached us with the concept the club was delighted to back it. It will be interesting to get fan feedback on different to usual pre-match fare.’

Normally FoodCycle’s volunteers are preparing food for local people at the kitchens in the John Pounds Centre Queen Street and Kings Church, Somers Road.
