Foodbank Collection - An EIC tradition

Foodbank Collection - An EIC tradition

The EIC Foodbank Collection - A Tradition

“I can’t even remember who suggested it initially, but it is now just something that Ealing Independent College have been doing for years”. 

This was the answer that Umberto, one of our Y13 students and members of Student Council, gave us when trying to remember how this tradition started. 

In fact, for years EIC have been supporting the local community by donating food and sanitary products that the students and staff collect at College. 

Every year, around November time, the Collection signs go up around College’s notice boards, and Student Council make sure that every form group is informed during their Form time. 

Then, either just before the Christmas holidays or after, the donations get brought to the Ealing Foodbank, or to local shops that support various charity initiatives.

This year, everything was brought to Tesco in Ealing last Friday. 

Grissini, canned food of all types, bags of sugar and salt, tissues and other sanitary products were collected, for a total of three card boxes - well done to the Ealing College Family!

It is lovely to see how effortlessly and rapidly this tradition has ingrained itself in our College Community, and how everyone feels involved in the FoodBank Collection. 

This term, EIC will also initiate new charity commitments and projects; stay tuned to get our latest updates!
