Foundation Learning students from North Warwickshire & Hinckley College presented food donations to a local charity recently.
Those on the Entry Level 3 and Level 1 Foundation Learning programme, based at the College’s Nuneaton Campus organised a food collection for The Nuneaton Food Bank.
Ian Lee, Preparation for Life and Work lecturer at the College said: “The Foundation Learning programme has a strong focus on preparing students for the world of work. Projects like this really get them in touch with the local community and voluntary organisations, allowing them to develop their team working and communication skills.
“As part of this project the students put their heads together to come up with the idea of a food donation. They then organised advertising around the campus and divided and packed the food parcels.
“We were then invited into the Nuneaton Food Bank Warehouse in Stockingford where students learnt more about how the donations are collected and distributed to the community.”
“This was a fantastic opportunity not only for the students to develop their skills but to also help towards a great cause and see where their donations go. Many thanks to the Food Bank for taking us on a tour, we look forward to working with them again in the future.”
The Nuneaton Food Bank is part of a nationwide network of food banks who provide emergency food and support to those in crisis. To find out more visit: https://nuneaton.foodbank.org.uk/about/
