Voluntary Work Foodbank

Food Parcels – students in Year 10 can take part in the voluntary work scheme whereby they build-up hours doing various activities that will benefit the community. The aim is to enhance the students’ personal statement and also to develop their empathy.

On a monthly basis we visit Frontline church, Wavertree Food Bank. The church takes in tinned food and the students go over and pack up a food parcel that will feed an average family for three days.

They are taught how the family get the food parcel and what foods to include.

Student feedback:

This type of work will really enrich my CV, it will help me stand out from other people applying for university places and jobs.

I was shocked that so many people in our own city are in poverty, but also proud that we are doing something to help them.
