I am working with a local first school and the Bay Foodbank on a pilot project which is big in the USA but has yet to reach the UK. The idea is to provide a child or young person with a bag of snacks to take home from school at the weekend, in order to address food insecurity.
There are plenty of volunteering opportunities to hold a food donation drive, raise awareness of the scheme and to prepare the bags each week. I am now seeking donations of food and snacks which will be sorted with volunteers at ‘Packing Parties’. If anyone has any tote bags or draw-string sports bags to donate I would be hugely grateful for them.
