City’s Community Foundation will deliver a further 750 free meals to vulnerable youngsters across the Bradford district - over next week's February half-term. 

Starting tomorrow (Monday February 15) and running through until Friday February 19, club officials will provide 150 meals per day to families at need - with the help of members of the Bantams' first-team squad. 

This follows similar work over Christmas - and during last year's October half-term - having obtained grants from Bradford Council. 

In addition to food being provided, £1,250 worth of books will also be delivered to young people across the district, in an attempt to 'Get Bradford Reading' ahead of World Book Day on Thursday March 4. 

Food delivered next week means that - in the space of four months, since October 2020 - the club will have provided a total of 3,000 free meals to those in need. 

Bradford City Community Foundation's business development officer, Qasim Akhtar - who has organised and delivered the service - said: "We are very fortunate to be in a situation where we can support our local community, once again.

"Thanks to our ongoing relationship with Bradford Council, children, young people and families are able to benefit from our food provision, ensuring no child or young person in our community goes hungry. 

"We find ourselves almost a year into a global pandemic, a tragedy which no one could have foreseen.
"We understand it is our duty and responsibility, as the charity arm of Bradford City Football Club, to support our community through this difficult period in every possible way - something we will continue to do for as long as we can."
