St James Primary School Food Bank

We are proud to announce we are now a Food Bank Collection Point for Food Bank Aid who supply a number of different food banks across North London, liaising with each one and supplying what is really needed, thereby avoiding surplus stocks of food or other products.

Food Bank Aid was set up in April 2020 to support North London food banks as they struggled with more than triple the normal demand through lockdown. Since then, they have grown, thanks to the support of volunteers and donors. Every week donations support 15-20 food banks across North London, which together, help around 12,000 vulnerable people including 3,000 children.

The St James Primary School community has always been incredibly generous and supportive of others. We really hope that you will be able to add an extra item or two to your shopping list and bring this to school to be added to our food bank collection.

Where is the collection point ?

The collection point is next to the lost property boxes opposite the bike sheds. You will find two blue boxes with the Food Bank Aid logo on them. Children can place items in the boxes on their way to class in the morning.


What can I donate?

Generally, this should be tinned items such as fish, fruit or vegetables and rice, grains and noodles or toiletries. 


How often can I make a donation?

As and when you are able to. We are a permanent collection point so we will deliver any food left here to the Food Bank Aid.


How will your donations get to Food Bank Aid?

Based at Chaplin Square, Great North Leisure Park, London N12 0GL, we will deliver your donations. If however, any parents are able to help with transporting items to the Food Aid Bank hub, please do let the School Office know.
