Harvest Foodbank Collection 2016

Harvest Foodbank Collection 2016

Littlehampton & District Foodbank have written to us to say the following:

“I am writing to thank you for sending the Harvest Collection from Summerlea CP School to our Foodbank this year. Our stock was running very low after a busy summer but thanks to a fantastic response from the community they received in a massive 3,072kg of new stock overall. We are currently holding double what we had at the end of August.

It may interest you to know what we distributed 604 x 3 day supplies of food in the 6 months April to September. Once again benefit changes and delays together accounted for the most vouchers issued at 40% followed by low income at 29%.

Behind the statistics of course are real people who will soon be struggling with winter bills that will push them into food crisis. Thanks to the help of the staff, parents and children at your School we will be in a position to assist those people who need to come to us in the coming months.”
