The Redstart Learning Partnership cares very deeply about the schools, children and families who make up the communities that we serve. We know that people from every part of our society are suffering hardship at this time, with money worries, job concerns and the simple pressure of being cooped up at home for most of every day.
As a practical way of expressing our concern, we are setting up two temporary food banks for the families that we serve. One will be based at Holy Trinity in Taunton, the other at Redstart in Chard.
Our aim is to provide a food box every week to every one of our families who asks for one.
This enterprise is entirely dependent on the generosity and good will of our staff, parents and communities. We are working with other local organisations to co-ordinate this provision, trying to ensure that every child and every family has enough food to eat. We can only provide what we are given or funded to buy.
We would be very grateful for any financial donation, however small.
