Kind-hearted parents and practitioners from Devonshire Day Nursery in Chiswick have made a generous donation of essential food and household items to the Hounslow Community FoodBox to help local people who need it most.
Following a record-rise in demand for items at food banks across the country due to the cost-of-living crisis, families from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Bennett Street made contributions of products such as cereal, pasta, tinned goods and toiletries in efforts to keep the charity well-stocked in supplies for the coming winter months.
Devonshire Day Nursery Business Administrator, Erica Lee explained;
“The past year has presented financial struggles for so many households across the country and we really wanted to ease some of this hardship in our community as we come into winter. The food bank provides a crucial lifeline to so many and we are so grateful for all the support from our nursery families, who set an amazing example for the children.”
Community FoodBox volunteers have provided 7-day food parcels right across the London Borough of Hounslow 5 days a week to support more than 7,000 adults and children so far in 2022, delivering around 75% of the food parcels to people’s homes.
The charity is currently appealing for cooking oil, tinned tomatoes and vegetables, condiments, pasta, rice, long life milk, toilet rolls, cereal, tinned soup and custard.
We prioritise the importance of outdoor play at Cedars Day Nursery in Leighton Buzzard. All children at our Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ nursery have access to our large, natural garden area on a daily basis as we recognise the impact that being outdoors has on a child’s social, emotional and physical development. The children enjoy planting vegetables and tasting their produce, served by our dedicated Nursery Chef.
