Following Year 7′s fantastic efforts on RE day as part of their study of the Harvest Festival, The Island Free School were able to donate 93.54kg of food to the Isle of Wight Foodbank. The Foodbank continues to make a big difference to people in need on the Island, and has supported a total of 2228 local people throughout the pandemic.
Well done, Year 7.
Ventnor Community Foodbank have written to us to offer their support to children experiencing food poverty. Thanks to the generosity of the local community they have a large stock of food items which they are able to share with vulnerable families that may need assistance with food and household items. They can provide food parcels – with parcels suitable for all diets and family sizes.
The Foodbank’s team of volunteers can also signpost to other agencies for any additional support that may be needed.
They are based at the Baptist Church in Pier Street, Ventnor and are open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am to 12noon and, from 14th November, on Saturday mornings from 10am to 12noon.
Ventnor Community Foodbank is part of the Independent Food Aid Network of over 400 foodbanks across the UK and has been funded by the Isle of Wight Council to support the Citizen’s Advice ‘Help Through Crisis’ scheme. They are also able to arrange for food parcels to be provided for residents of Niton, Whitwell and Chale.
No voucher or formal referral is required. All welcome – just turn up.
