This term the Pupil Council are helping The Clydesdale Food Bank set up by the Church of Scotland in Carluke, in co-operation with the New Beginning Project. The aim of this project is to collect food and household items to help those in food poverty. Schools in Carluke have been asked to participate in bringing food into school to make up food banks.
We have decided to help people in our Community by asking pupils to bring in some essential items. This is entirely voluntary but if you can bring any spare or unwanted items from their list then that would be greatly appreciated.
We have divided up the household pack between our seven classes. If you have any of the following items, please bring them to school. There will be a food bank box in each class for all items. The Pupil Council will then make up the packages to be delivered to Clydesdale Food Bank.
Primary 1 - Tea Bags, Soap, Jam/Marmalade, Kitchen Rolls, Packet of Savoury Rice, Dry Pasta and Rice.
Primary 2 - Coffee, Shampoo, Cooking Oil, Tissues, Tinned Vegetables and Tinned Fruit.
Primary 3 - Sugar, Cleaning Cloths, Diluting Juice, Soup, Tinned Pasta, Jar of Sauce to go with Rice and Biscuits.
Primary 4 - Ketchup, Scourers, Washing up liquids, Cup a Soup, Tinned/Dried Potatoes, Jar of Pasta Sauce and Toothbrush.
Primary 5 - Brown Sauce, Toothpaste, Noodles, Washing Powder, Tinned Tomatoes, Cereal and Face Cloth.
Primary 6 - Tinned Beans, Tin Opener, Tinned Fish, All Purpose Cleaner/Wipes and Porridge.
Primary 7 - Toilet Rolls, Salt, Pepper, Bleach, Packet Pasta in Sauce and Tinned Meats.
