Childwall Abbey school Year 10 and 11 pupils are working as hard as ever to achieve their ASDAN goals. This term they are learning about the work of charitable organisations and would like to support the Trussell Trust who run foodbanks for those in need.
Our pupils have suggested that parents, carers, staff and Governors might like to help them to collect food items which can then be delivered by our students to our nearest Trussell Trust food bank.
The Parents Evening next week (16/11/16, 4pm to 5.30pm) would provide a great opportunity for anyone who wishes to donate, to bring some items along. We will also collect anything pupils bring in over the next two weeks.
Here is some advice from the Trussell Trust regarding appropriate items to donate.
What’s in a Food Parcel?
Foodbanks provide a minimum of three-days’ nutritionally balanced, non-perishable tinned and dried foods that have been donated by the local community.
A typical food parcel includes:
Cereal, Soup, Pasta, Rice, Pasta Sauce, Beans, Tinned meat, Tinned vegetables, Tea/coffee, Tinned fruit, Biscuits.
We are always so very proud of the generosity and thoughtfulness of our pupils and their families. Thank you for supporting our pupils in their efforts to help others.
