At FDA, we are committed to ensuring all children have regular access to food, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.
There are two ways in which we are doing this:
- Free School Meal Vouchers.
If your child is entitled to Free School Meals, then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange for the vouchers to be emailed to you.
- B32 CommUNITY Food@ FDPA.
We are providing weekly food parcels to any family in our community that needs them. This is separate to Free School Meal Vouchers and can be used in addition to this, if needed. Food parcels can be collected from the primary school between 1:30- 2:30 pm on Mondays and Fridays .
The food is provided from a number of sources, including Magic Breakfast, The Active Wellbeing Society and Fair Share.
B32 CommUnity are working in the school as a basis for collecting and distributing this wonderful supply of food.
