About the Charity

Food Bank Aid is a charity which supports over 25 independent food banks across North London and Hertfordshire by collecting, sorting and distributing food, toiletries and household items to over 14,000 people including 4,000 children. They are currently appealing for help as we approach the school summer holidays.

We feel strongly as a school community that we should help raise awareness of food poverty and engage particularly with our children about social responsibility, but most importantly help those families who are really struggling.

We know this is a challenging time for all of us but even a packet of biscuits, for example, will be very much appreciated.

Thank you for your support.

Best wishes,

Miss J Bensason
