At assemblies last week Mr Fletcher encouraged all pupils to support the work of the Cambridge Food Bank by bringing non-perishable food and other household items to school. The Food Bank works to provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are in crisis. They are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK, and have seen a huge increase in demand during the pandemic. At least 90% of the food they distribute is donated.
Thank you to our families who encouraged their children to consider the needs of others and whose generous donations of the items that the Food Bank is most in need of at this time filled up 22 large bags. It is wonderful to see the outpouring of support from the Heritage community for this important work.
