St. Joseph's Primary support local food bank

St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School collected twelve large boxes and several carrier bags of food for the Bishop Stortford’s Food Bank.

The school Chaplaincy team, comprising of a group of year 6 pupils, successfully organised the huge collection of food at the start of July.

The school has been an ‘official friend’ of the Food Bank for a number of years, raising funds for the organisation. Over a fortnight of hard work, the Chaplaincy Team gathered a wide range of foods which were generously donated by the children and their families.

The school wish to thank everyone involved in this outreach opportunity.
