Good Cause for Wolverhampton Boss
The project is aimed at reducing the effects of food poverty in Wolverhampton, which have worsened amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Per BBC Sport, Nuno Espirito Santo stated: “Wolves fans and the people of Wolverhampton have been fantastic to me since I arrived here almost four years ago.
“I wanted to give something back and help the people who are struggling during the [coronavirus] pandemic.”
“When you live in a city, you see and hear how people have been affected, but it is also a great city where people help and support each other and this is a really important project from the Wolves Foundation.”
Scheduled to be active for the next three years, Feed Our Pack received a £250,000 grant from the Premier League PFA Community Fund.
