To help those in need of food, Feeder are asking fans to drop off donations at gigs.

It’s estimated that across the UK, we waste 7 million tonnes of food and drink every single year. Meanwhile, record numbers of people are suffering from food poverty and have had to turn to a foodbank just to survive. Whilst these foodbanks do brilliant work, they are largely volunteer-driven and have to provide a huge amount of support on very small budgets. The problem is so large in fact, that no one even knows exactly how many people it affects.
Food Fighters sees Kerrang! Radio teaming up with two incredible charities, The Trussell Trust and FareShare, to make as much noise as possible about food poverty and food waste in the UK.
That’s where we come in.
10th Bristol o2 Academy
12th London The Roundhouse
13th Portsmouth Pyramids
14th Nottingham Rock City
These four events (so far) are ones looking for your donations. It’s simple – simply bring your tinned items or pastas to the gig in the venue foyer to help. That’s it!
Now you can enjoy your gig and do good at the same time! Awesome!
