Ark Pioneer Collecting for Chipping Barnet Foodbank

Friday 04 December 2020

At this time of year our pupils have a focus on Alturism and giving back to their community as part of our Values and Character programme. We have followed Marcus Rashford's (one of our year 8 namesake's) campaign for food equality closely and as a result our pupils wanted to support their local food bank over the Christmas period. We will be collecting donations for the Chipping Barnet Foodbank from 7th - 16th December 2020. 

The Foodbank provides three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to them in crisis. They are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. 

They urgently need tinned meat (ham, chicken, beef), tinned fish and tinned fruit.  Cereals, rice, pasta, tea, coffee, snacks, tinned vegetables, UTH milk, mini toiletries sets and sanitary products are also very welcome.
