Appeal to businesses for festive donations for free School Meals Hamper

A new Government Covid Winter Grant Scheme is set to provide additional funding for free school meals over the Christmas holidays.

Doncaster Council will be providing meals by way of food hampers to over 120 schools/academies across the borough. Approx. 11,000 hampers will be distributed to schools week commencing 14 December 2020.

This is an appeal to any local businesses/voluntary organisations that might like to help and support this by adding an item to the hampers perhaps through donations or sponsorship.

Foods will need to be non-perishable items that will keep, such as a selection box/chocolate (branded/unbranded) to help make a more comfortable Christmas and New Year for struggling families. 

Any business that would like to make a donation please contact via e mail helen.fifoot@doncaster.gov.uk or 01302 736747 / 0797 005 2006
