Food Bank

During 2019-20 and the impact of Covid-19, we started our own small-scale food bank to support families in need and those with rapidly changing circumstances. This saw food parcels delivered by members of school staff and donations from our students, staff and the wider community.

This year we aim to broaden our offer and provide a more consistent service, placing The Heys School further at the heart of our community. Donations are welcome via the Main Office, whilst maintaining social distancing measures.

Please follow the link to register for support via our food bank. A member of our team will then be in touch.

We are looking for donations to make up typical food parcels which include:

  • Cereal / cereal bars
  • Tinned soup
  • Dried pasta / noodles
  • Rice
  • Tinned tomatoes / pasta sauce
  • Tinned beans / spaghetti
  • Tinned meat
  • Tinned vegetables
  • Tea/coffee/sugar
  • Tinned fruit / desserts / jam
  • Crackers, biscuits and treats
  • UHT milk
  • UHT Fruit juice / cordial

Many food banks also provide essential non-food items such as toiletries (eg. toilet paper, shower gel, shaving gel, shampoo, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste), household items (washing up liquid, washing powder) and baby goods (baby wipes, baby food). 

 

Pre-used carrier bags also come in useful to package items up for delivery

Please note that we cannot accept any perishable or fresh goods.

Many thanks for supporting our school with this venture.  We really appreciate your kind donations.
