Volunteering

filling bags

We have been learning about the reasons why more and more people in the UK are using food banks. We found out that high food prices, low wages and the new benefit cuts and sanctions are the main reasons. Before the October week we visited West Dunbartonshire Community Food Share, we found out that over 200 bags of food are given to people in the local area every week! Our teacher asked us if we were surprised at the high number, most of us were shocked. Every week, 6 of primary 7a and primary 7b will visit the distribution centre in Dumbarton to help sort the food and put it into bags.  We will be helping the local community as well as developing skills for the future.bags made upvarious good various at fb
