Our little food bank is our an initiative which aims to provide essential support for the families and adults of Northfields who may be experiencing food insecurity or financial difficulties.
If you are a member of the school community and you are in need of food, you can visit the foyer and take what you need. It’s important to be respectful and only take what you will use, so that there is enough for everyone who needs it.
If you have any questions about the food bank or how it works, you can ask the staff members who are involved with organising it – They are Miss Taylor and Mrs Cobb.
They may also be able to provide you with additional resources or support if you need it, including second hand uniform.
