On Wednesday the 9th of December I attended a meeting with a number of people for the school food appeal. At the beginning of period 6 one of my friends and I went to the junior canteen for a meeting, in this meeting we got into groups and went around the school asking classes to give whatever food they can. This was for the St. Vincent de Paul and would be collected period 1 on Friday the 11th. On Friday we went around asking people to drop the food off to reception and then we spent the rest of the class sorting through the food and packing it in boxes. We then got our photo taken for the newspaper. This food appeal was for those who had no food this Christmas, all the boxes were taken to the St. Vincent de Paul and it would be staying in the local area for anyone who needs it this Christmas. Only non-perishable food was accepted and sweets and cake seeing as it would be staying in the local area, there was mainly tinned food brought in but there was a large selection of other non-perishable food brought in to. A lot of people contributed to it and it was a great turnout of food for a great cause.
