In­fants do­nate col­lected pro­duce for food bank

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

AN IN­FANTS’ School held a spe­cial assem­bly to mark Har­vest Time and then do­nated all the food it had col­lected from pupils and their fam­i­lies to Hilling­don Food­bank.

The Rev An­drew Sheard from the parishes of St An­drew’s and St Mar­garet’s was in­vited to share the assem­bly which was opened by head­teacher, Mrs Bringan with Miss Bishop and Miss Puro­hit lead­ing the chil­dren in singing.

A rep­re­sen­ta­tive from each class then got to make a de­liv­ery to the har­vest ta­ble.

Rev An­drew got the au­di­ence think­ing about healthy eat­ing and the ben­e­fits of ‘five-a-day’ and then posed some ques­tions to the chil­dren such as ‘what is a Granny Smith?’ What fruits grow in sunny Spain? And one for the grown ups – is rhubarb a fruit or a veg­etable?

Mr Sheard also pre­pared some food mod­els for the chil­dren to hang on the ‘Har­vest Tree of Thanks’.

The con­tri­bu­tions were do­nated to Hilling­don Food­bank for dis­tri­bu­tion to fam­i­lies in need.
