THE MEADOWS Primary School in Northfield has received vital food supplies and other general essentials, thanks to Jack’s in Rubery.
Vicky Jones, Meadows’ head of resource base, said: “Everyone in the school is really grateful for Jack’s wonderful donation.
“The food bank has made a great start and is already making a difference to so many families.”
It is one of several contributions the discount supermarket on New Road has made to the local community which has also offered £500 grants to charities and organisations which have helped during the Covid-19 relief effort.
Jack’s has also been collecting donations for foodbank charity the Trussell Trust.
Shoppers can leave items at the collection point at the front of the store for the B30 Foodbank on the Pershore Road which is run by Trussell Trust.
Samantha Stapley, the Trussell Trust’s chief operating officer, added: “The support of Jack’s supermarket means we can remain agile to respond to the fast-changing situation and ensure food banks continue to provide the lifeline of emergency food and additional support for people in crisis.”
Louis Chambers, Jack’s Rubery store manager, said: “We’re very happy to be able to help members of the community, especially teachers and pupils who are struggling during this time.
“I’m proud of all of our colleagues for their efforts, especially over the last few weeks – it’s been challenging but really rewarding to know you’re making a difference.”
