Many thanks to all the families who sent in food donations in support of our harvest project. The food has now being collected and sent to the Scunthorpe Fodd bank who I am sure will make sure the food goes to good use. Below is some information which we have shared with the children about how food bank works.

How foodbanks work

We provide emergency food to people in crisis.

Scouting for food written in white chalk on a black chalkboard isolated on whiteEvery day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. A simple box of food can make a huge difference. Foodbanks help prevent crime, housing loss, family breakdown and mental health problems.

Food is donated

Schools, churches, businesses and individuals donate non-perishable, in-date food to a foodbank. Large collections often take place as part of Harvest Festival celebrations and food is also collected at supermarkets.

Food is sorted and stored

Volunteers sort food to check it’s in date and pack it into boxes ready to be given to people in need. Over 40,000 people give up their time to volunteer at foodbanks.

Professionals identify people in need

Foodbanks partner with a wide range of care professionals such as doctors, health visitors, social workers and police to identify people in crisis and issue them with a foodbank voucher.

Clients receive food

Foodbank clients bring their voucher to a foodbank centre where it can be redeemed for three days’ emergency food. Volunteers meet clients over a warm drink or free hot meal and are able to signpost people to agencies able to solve the longer-term problem.

Big Battery Hunt Competition  2019

The school council organised this fun initiative for the school We talked abut battery recycling.We were amazed to find out that a battery takes 100 years to decompose. We also found out that batteries can be recycled into metal skyscrapers and parts of a racing car engine.

Each class have been set to work to collect batteries in the special battery container. When they are full we will be recycling the batteries and we will update you on which class collected the most. Good luck!
