Foodbank Collection Week - Monday 19th February - Friday 23rd February

Foodbank Collection Week Monday 19th –Friday 23rd February


After such a fantastic response (thank you!) to the reverse advent calendar donations it was felt that this is something that shouldn’t be done just at Christmas but be something that happens throughout the year too. Therefore, the idea of having a foodbank bin in the school foyer area for one week during each school term was presented. Foodbank Collection Week The week selected for this term is Monday 19th – Friday 23rd February and appropriately ties in with Lent. During that week there will be a ‘Foodbank’ collection bin in the foyer area at school. There is absolutely no obligation to make a donation. However, if possible donations of non-perishable foods, hygiene products, washing powders etc… would be gratefully received. The foodbank has a policy of only one donation per child please. Ideas: Spaghetti - tinned. Tomatoes - tinned. Tin meals. - (Mixed meals), Chilli con carne Irish stew, Beef stew, Ham, Corned beef, Hot dogs, All other kinds of tinned meals. Rice - packet. Rice pudding - tin. The Foodbank already has loads of pasta and pasta sauces, tea and coffee. If you see a ‘Buy One Get One Free’ deal in the supermarket, the ‘free one’ would be much appreciated. Thank you so much! Catherine Wyatt (Alexander in Year 2’s mum)
