The children in our class at Ysgol Llanonnen have been studying food and farming this term. We have visited a local farm and seen the farm's big machinery picking potatoes and storing them in the sheds. There was also a field full of carrots and beetroot. We are going to learn to cook some vegetables.
Unfortunately, a great many parents cannot afford to buy food to support their families. That is because they can’t get work.
We will be holding a Harvest thanksgiving service in church on 25 October to give thanks for everything we have had this year. Parents are welcome to the service and there will be an opportunity to see it on Zoom by contacting Mrs Francis to get the Zoom connection password. As part of the service, we want to collect dry foods for the Food Bank in town.
We wondered if you would be willing and able to contribute a couple of packets/tins/cans of food to the Bank. If we do get some donations two members of class will be allowed to go to the Food Bank to help for a morning and we look forward to seeing how it works and supports the local society.
Mali, Jessica and Max.
