Alice Charity School's Pantry Project is expanding into Merit to support our students and their families with emergency food parcels.
The school’s pantry was launched back in 2019 when Alice Charity received reports that children were going into school hungry, lunch boxes contained very little and some children were eating very little when they were at home. No child should ever go hungry! Alice charity will do whatever possible to ensure that.
The Schools Pantry has two offers: a mini pantry where families can receive a food parcel including toiletries, cleaning products, nappies, and baby milk. Alice Charity will provide food that meets the needs of families. Each food parcel will contain items to make at least three breakfasts, three lunches, three evening meals and snacks for the whole family.
Secondly, the School Pantry offers a Grab & Go section for any children without a snack or any child whose lunch box is a little empty. The Grab and Go consists of foods such as cereal bars, fruit in jelly, porridge pots, cup a soup, dried fruit, crisps, crackers, jam, and meat paste.
