The Food Bank Appeal was organised by Form Captains in years 8, 9 and 10.
41 boxes were donated totalling 184.3kg!
No-one should have to make the choice this winter between feeding their families and heating their homes. Unfortunately however, 83 neighbourhoods in Brent and Harrow are suffering more deprivation now than was the case just 10 years ago. We wanted to take some responsibility for our role in the fight against poverty and our way of doing this, at this time of year, was to support Harrow Food Bank. 13 million people live below the poverty line in the UK – that is almost one in five of our population. Last year food banks fed over 900,000 people, including 330,000 children. Food banks are run by the community, for the community, and volunteers of all backgrounds help to run them by packing, sorting and distributing the food and other goods. Food banks are an emergency service.
Thank you to everyone who donated towards the shopping lists.
