Earlier this week, the School delivered a whopping 821.74kg of food – the largest single donation the charity has ever received – to the Foodbank warehouse.

The school-wide collection, which amounted to almost £1,400 worth of goods, was organised by a group of Senior Years pupils who volunteer with the charity every week and who decided to act to help tackle the issue of increased demand and diminishing stock for the Foodbank. 

Among the items donated, cereal and long-life milk will be passed on to the charity Dundee Bairns, who run breakfast clubs in the school holidays for children in poverty who usually rely on free school meals and breakfast clubs during term time.

Dundee Foodbank Manager Ken Linton, said, "The staff, pupils and parents at the High School of Dundee continue to amaze us at Dundee Foodbank with their generosity and compassion for people who are going through hardship at this time.

“This food donation will go a long way to supporting many who are in crisis."

Karlene Douglas, Charities and Community Outreach Co-ordinator at the School, added, “A huge thanks to everyone in the Nursery, Junior Years and Senior Years that donated to the Foodbank collection.

“We’re delighted to be able to help support such a worthy cause.”
