Fighting poverty in our community by providing food parcels, uniform, clothing, and other items for families in need.

WHEN?

We are now open for collection:

Monday to Friday: 3:00pm-3:30pm

If there is an emergency requirement outside of these times, please contact the school office via office@heaversfarm.croydon.sch.uk

WHERE?

Our hub is located in the end classroom which is adjacent to the staff carpark by the Nurture room/Nursery. It is clearly marked with signage. The hub is private and shielded from public view, so you maintain your privacy.

If you have trouble finding the hub, please speak to someone in the school office, who will show you to the hub.

Please see the map below for the exact location of the hub.

WHY DO WE NEED A COMMUNITY HUB?

In recent times there has been a huge increase in poverty and social deprivation, which has been accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic and the current cost of living crisis. In 2021/22 approximately 2.17 million people used a foodbank in the United Kingdom, which is a shocking number. However, it is estimated that this figure will increase drastically in the coming year. Statistically, over 25% more people are reported to be turning to a foodbank for the first time in 2023. This figure includes working professionals who are feeling the pressures of the current climate.

In response to this, Heavers Farm are committed to helping our families and school community to get through these difficult times. It is felt that more of our families are struggling to put food on the table and to heat their homes. Something which, at Heavers we feel very passionately about, is the concept that no one should go hungry. With this in mind, we are striving to make a difference in our school community by helping with emergency food parcels.

HOW CAN THE COMMUNITY HELP?

We are proud to offer this service with the help of our community donations and in association with:
