St Germans Primary & The Foodbank

13th October 2016

Yesterday I met the amazing children from St Germans Primary who have been collectiong food during the Harvest Festival for the King's Lynn Foodbank.

The children explain why they decided to help..


King’s Lynn Foodbank has launched a new appeal, asking local people to take a different approach this Harvest by giving a ‘Combined Harvest’ donation of food and money, which will help the charity continue its vital work during the shift from Autumn to Winter, when the foodbank sees a significant rise in need for their support.

The foodbank, which is part of The Trussell Trust Foodbank Network, provides vital emergency support to local people when something unavoidable - such as redundancy, illness or even an unexpected large bill – hits and there’s no money to put food on the table. So far this year, 2402 three-day emergency food supplies were provided to local people in crisis by the foodbank.


Can you help stock these shelfs for those in need.

They rely on the support of the local community to make a lasting impact in King’s Lynn area providing emergency food but also helping people to break out of crisis more long term. All of the food they provide is donated, so food donations are really important. But the foodbank also has lots of costs you might not immediately think of: they pay rent, cover transport costs and pay for utilities and insurance.

Theyare particularly grateful for extra help at Harvest as they prepare for winter, the foodbank’s busiest time of the year. That’s why this Harvest they would love for anyone considering helping the foodbank to ‘combine’ their donation and give both money and food – it will make a real difference as they continue to provide much-needed help to people in our community.”
