Thank you everyone for your wonderful Harvest gifts that were distributed to Kings Foodbank last Tuesday morning.
Before leaving for the foodbank, School Councillors had been busy sorting through all the donations. They arranged them into groups according to the type of food e.g. beans, cereals, pasta, vegetables. Then we used marker pens to clearly label each tin with the expiry date before putting all the produce inside boxes and bags to carry. By doing this we were really helping reduce the work involved by all the volunteers at the foodbank.
After carrying very heavy bags though the wet streets of Kendal, we finally arrived at the Foodbank where we were met by the manager. We were extremely fortunate to be able to take a peek inside where we learnt about how the food is stocked, organised and how it benefits our community. We were also able to gather together a food package for one person to last 5 days!
Some of the School Councillors were also making enquiries about opportunities to volunteer there in the future.
Well done and thank you to our School Council for taking these donations to the Foodbank. This year, your gifts were shared between Milnthorpe and Kendal Foodbank.
