2020 Harvest Festival Success!

A massive thank you and congratulations to all who participated in our Harvest Festivals and food drives this year.

Despite the challenges brought on by the coronavirus, we received an overwhelming amount of support and were able to deliver this year’s harvest festival donations to over 100 beneficiaries that we work with regularly.

Primary and secondary schools across the south helped support those people who need it most, with food donations during the harvest festival season. Pupils were encouraged to donate surplus food such as tinned beans and pasta, which UKHarvest distribute to organisations including food banks and community kitchens.  

This year we provided an educational video to all participating schools, helping to shed some light on exactly how the kind donations given by pupils and staff each year, benefit the community around them. From their assembly hall, students joined the food as it journeyed all the way from their kitchen cupboards, through the hands of our hard-working volunteers, into our UKHarvest vans.

Each year over a million people are supported by foodbanks, who rely on kind donations from people who are fortunate enough to not worry about an empty kitchen cupboard. The work schools do around the time of Harvest festival provides invaluable support to those organisations, who work so hard to keep the nation well nourished.  

Thank you to the following schools that participated in this year’s festival: East Preston School, Southway Primary School, QE2 School, The Regis School, Bishop Tufnell School, Nyewood CE Junior School, Felpham Community College, Lindfield Primary Academy, Fordwater School, Alfriston Primary School.

Thank you for a brilliant year, and we hope we can partner with even more schools in 2021!
