School pupils hold community feed for 300 people

PUPILS at a Liverpool School are holding a community feed for 300 local people, on Tuesday, 4 April 2017, to highlight the issues of poverty. Year 5 children at St Teresa of Lisieux Catholic Primary School in Norris Green have been studying a topic entitled:- 'What riches lie in poverty?', looking at issues around the world from South Africa to Europe and the UK.

The idea for:- 'The Food, Love and Community Feed' came from looking at stark statistics regarding poverty in this country, which prompted the pupils to seek a wider understanding of what support there is within communities for those suffering with financial difficulties, and what part they can play in helping tackle it.  It will see the local community enjoy free, warm delicious food prepared by the children, explore an edible playground where they have been growing their own fruit and vegetables, take part in cookery lessons with professional chefs, learn about the work of food banks and have the opportunity to benefit from debt advice and money management advisors.

As part of their learning and organisation for the event, the children have:-

► Written and pitched to supermarkets asking for donations of food, including Tesco, in Old Swan.

► Visited a local Food Hub and Food Bank to help out in the community.

► Written leaflets educating others on the topic of poverty.

► Volunteered to work alongside the Liverpool Real Junk Food Project prepping food for other community events.

► Linked up with professional chefs, who taught them how cooking healthy cooking is possible on a budget.

► Read and discussed the novel:- 'Just Juice' by Karen Hesse, prompting discussions about generation poverty and those who feel disenfranchised

Headteacher Andrew Tremarco said:- "This has been a remarkable project looking at an issue which affects millions of people around the world, including many close to home.  It has really inspired our children to do something practical and positive to tackle the issue of poverty. Most importantly, the community will have an opportunity to come together and celebrate the joy, happiness and richness that love and togetherness can bring to us all."
