CCA Community Food & Clothing Store

 

We continue to work alongside Fare Share Yorkshire to enable us to operate a school community food store to support our families, where we can distribute fresh, ambient and chilled food. This was particularly vital to our school and its community throughout the pandemic where we managed to secure two deliveries a week.

As over 270,000 tonnes of perfectly edible surplus food is thrown away each year, we want to support Fare Share’s vision in seeing that food is put to good use by helping to redistribute quality, in date surplus food, which would otherwise have go to waste. Thus turning an environmental problem into a social solution.

School funds the cost to access Fare Share’s provision for a weekly delivery. The contribution fees cover about half of the charity’s fuel, warehousing, staffing and volunteering costs and they then fundraise the final part.

We also offer a Clothing Store, including donated school uniform, shoes and other clothing items.

Please remember FareShare is for ALL the parents of our children and is available without judgement or conditions.
