Pupils at the High School of Dundee were delighted to make a donation to Dundee Foodbank.

Children at the High School of Dundee have handed over a donation to the Foodbank

Children in L2 (P2), and their parents, contributed a huge number and range of items to a collection for the charity which was organised as part of a classroom project on ‘Farming and Food’.

After gathering together all the goods, the pupils were thrilled to be able to hear from Dundee Foodbank Manager, Ken Linton, and to ask him questions, when he came in to school to receive the donation.

He said, “It was very nice to be able to meet the children and to thank them, and their families, for the donation.

“It was great to be able to answer their questions and to have the opportunity to tell them a little bit about the history of the Foodbank and its work. I was also able to explain how, unfortunately, it has become busier and busier with the number of people who are struggling across the city.”

L2 teachers, Margaret Cardno and Jillian Wallace, who organised the collection, said, “The Foodbank collection has been a valuable aspect of our ‘Farming and Food’ project, encouraging the children to think of others. 

“The families have been most generous in their backing of this worthwhile initiative and we have been happy to support the Dundee Foodbank once again.”
