Bennett and Rose supporting pop-up veggie burger stall
Vegan Pompey stars Kyle Bennett and Danny Rose have backed charity FoodCycle’s pop-up veggie burger stall initiative.
This will enable fans to buy a healthy, nutritious lunch ahead of today’s game against Cambridge.
The club, Pompey in the Community and Fratton Tesco have teamed up to support the fundraising campaign.
The pop-up burger stall will be located outside the Tesco store in Fratton Way from around midday.
FoodCycle is a national charity that combines volunteers, surplus food and spare kitchen spaces to create tasty, nutritious meals for people at risk of food poverty and social isolation.
Portsmouth group organiser Gail Baird said: “We serve tasty dishes for people in need of a hot meal and friendship twice a week in Portsmouth.
“FoodCycle meals are a vital service for vulnerable people, but we depend on volunteers and donations.
“We’re delighted Kyle and Danny are able to support our cause and it’s fascinating to learn there are professional sportsmen who have a vegan diet!”
Bennett and Rose have both been vegan for more than a year.
FoodCycle provides meals on Tuesdays at the John Pounds Centre in Queen Street and Thursdays at Kings Church Hall in Somers Road.
