Harvest Festival: Collecting For Those in Need
To mark this year’s harvest festival, children, parents and staff have been bringing gifts of food, which 22 Street Lane Nursery is donating on their behalf to the local Leeds North and West Foodbank.
In a bid to tackle food poverty on our doorstep, we have been collecting dry/tinned food including breakfast cereal, soup, pasta, rice, pasta sauce, baked beans, tinned meat, tinned vegetables, instant mash, UHT milk, tea, coffee, sugar, tinned dessert and biscuits.
Over 60 items were donated in all, which will make a real difference in our local community and help towards making sure that no-one has to go hungry.
More than 90% of the food distributed by foodbanks in The Trussell Trust network is donated by the public – that’s why food donations are absolutely vital to their ability to give everyone referred to the foodbank, a balanced and nutritious three day supply of food.
Caroline Pollard, owner of 22 Street Lane Nursery said: “We believe that that no-one should go hungry in our local area, and are touched by the generosity and community spirit that everyone has shown in this food collection initiative. Thank you.”
The foodbanks also welcome donations, which they use to to provide help to people in crisis, as well as skills and food donations. To find out more how you have help please visit their website by clicking here.
