Our Schools team have been traveling around visiting schools in Brighton and Hove and beyond presenting their Harvest assembly.
They have given school children a clearer understanding of who the food collected will help by showing a video of the story of one of our clients. They have shared with over 7000 children what Jesus said about including everyone in our lives, and have told them what a great thing they have done in bringing just a few items into school that will add together and end up feeding many people.
In total the Schools team helped collect and deliver 3755 kg, which is around half of all the Harvest food donated! As a result of the children hearing about the needs of our Brighton Food Bank clients, several schools have already committed to take part in collecting for our Christmas appeal, the Reverse Advent Calendar.
