Kids Planet Higher Broughton have been collecting for their local foodbank. The nursery located on Bury New Road, set up a collection point by the entrance of the nursery so that staff, children and parents could drop their donations off. Donations of different varieties were collected such as tinned goods, pasta, soups, puddings etc. The children also talked and learned about who may need extra support in their community.
Suzanne Unsworth, Nursery Manager said “We are over the moon at how well our families have supported the foodbank. We look forward to continuing to support each month to help the members of our community who need it most”.
The Salford Central foodbank rely on food donations to feed local people in crisis. It is supported by local churches and the community, working together towards stopping hunger in our local area. It was started at the end of 2012 and grew quickly to support many local people who have been in a crisis situation. They are open four sessions per week and have two employees. Mark Whittington works full time as foodbank manager and Mervyn Gledhill works part-time as foodbank coordinator.
The foodbank is situated at Christ Central, Mocha Parade in Higher Broughton, Salford. Mark Whittington, Manager, said “We are grateful to Kids Planet and to everyone who has donated food to our foodbank. So far in 2016 we have fed 1576 people which includes 635 children and these donations will ensure we can continue to help local people in crisis”.
