Harvest Food Drive - Friday 17th October

Following the success of our Superhero food drive our Harvest food drive will take place on Friday 17th October. During our last food drive, we collected over 800 items of food, weighing in at 361.4kg. Which is amazing!

Of course we want this food drive to be bigger and better. Our theme this week is from the garden or on the farm. We want everyone to wear their wellies to school in support of our local Trussell Foodbank. 

Please bring in an item of food that comes from the garden or from the farm. Have a look at the list below;
Fruit juice (carton)
Pasta sauces
Tomatoes (tinned)
Instant mash potato
Tinned meat
Tinned fish
Tinned fruit
Tinned vegetables

Last year Harvest Festival collections from various organisations totalled over 2.9 tonnes of much needed food. Throughout the year, Harold Hill foodbank was able to provide food to 1,514 adults and 1,166 children, as well as providing food to other local organisations like local homeless projects and the Women’s Refuge. The demands on the foodbank are as strong as ever and this is where we need your help.

Of course, there will be a prize for the class that brings in the most items of food!
