Harvest at NHP
This year’s Harvest at NHP was a week-long celebration that was all about community, in partnership with the K&C Foodbank. The whole school have been generously donating items for the Foodbank and we look forward to delivering these to be made into parcels to support those in our local area most in need. We were visited by Reverend Paul Wood who spoke to our OB pupils in an assembly all about what Harvest is. On Wednesday, 4th October, the whole school had a ‘basic’ lunch, a pared back menu made up predominantly of items that can be found on the Foodbank shopping list. Our kitchen staff collaborated to come up with a menu that was nutritious and saved an incredible £345.59 in food costs, which we will be donating to the Foodbank. The celebrations were topped off with a Year 5 visit to the Foodbank, who warmly welcomed us to learn all about the importance of why the Foodbank exists, who they serve and how they do this. We all learned a lot and the children had the opportunity to help out by making up food parcels.
Ellie, Year 5: The trip to the food bank was good because it is important to be aware of people who can’t afford enough food because of the cost of living crisis. Being more aware of it and supporting food banks is making a big difference to the people who go there.
Woojae, Year 5: This food bank trip was important because it taught us about how grateful we should be for our food and how important food banks are.
