Harvest Festival, Friday 10 October, 9.00am
The School’s Harvest Festival will take place next Friday 10 October at 9.00am led by Year 6 Polar Bears. This harvest we are asking you to help feed local people in crisis by collecting tinned and dried food for Rugby foodbank.
There are an estimated 12,500 people living on the edge of poverty in Rugby including 14% of our town’s children. Even a relatively small problem can throw people living on the edge of poverty into crisis. Every day local people are forced to send their children to bed hungry, but the good news is that you can be part of the solution. By simply donating a tin of food you are helping make a difference in the community you live in. The food bank requires foods from the list below to make up balanced food parcels:-
Milk (UHT or powdered) Sugar (500g)
Long life fruit juice Tinned Tomatoes
Tinned vegetables Breakfast cereals (not porridge)
Tinned Rice pudding or custard Coffee
Instant mash potato 500gms Rice
Dried pasta/rice snack meals Tinned meat/fish
Thank you in advance for any contributions that you are able to make and your support for our community.
