Port’s really fishy appeal needs you

THERE is something fishy about Port Adelaide’s AFL form — and the Power would not mind that theme continuing with a win against hunger at Adelaide Oval on Friday night.

Port Adelaide is asking its fans to load their bags with cans of tuna for the Foodbank “Power to End Hunger” campaign during the AFL clash with Essendon at the Oval.

Club sponsor EnergyAustralia has ordered a custom-built football that will be the collection tub for the tuna tins at the Oval’s Southern Plaza.

The tuna will help ease the increasing demand on Foodbank’s supply chain as more than 60,000 South Australians each month struggle to find enough food for their diets. One-third of this group is children who will directly benefit from tonight’s collection.

Port Adelaide captain Travis Boak says his club’s “give before you take” philosophy must be also taken up by Power fans.

“There are a lot of people who need help — and we get a chance as a Port Adelaide family to give something to help those families who are doing it tough,” Boak said. “We live by the ‘give before you take’ theme and as players, coaches and fans we are in the fortunate position where we can give something while enjoying a game of football.”

Each goal scored by the Port Adelaide players on Friday will continue EnergyAustralia’s support of the “Power to End Hunger” campaign by providing 200 meals to Foodbank. In the past three years, the Power goalscoring at home games has led to more than 90,000 meals for struggling South Australians.
