Darwin High School supports Foodbank

Darwin High School supports Foodbank

Darwin High School Year 10 Food for Life students are undertaking an assessed group activity which requires them to plan and prepare meals utilizing rescued food. 

Last week the students and their teacher Ali Stringer completed a marathon two days of cooking to make 354 ready to go meals for Foodbank. This week Foodbank will collect the frozen meals, which will then be donated to help those less fortunate. 

Foodbank rescues edible but surplus food and groceries from the country’s farmers, manufacturers and retailers. This includes product that is out of specification, close to date code, has incorrect labelling or damaged packaging as well as excess stock and deleted lines. Without Foodbank much of this food would simply go to landfill.

Darwin High School would like to thank Woolworths Darwin City for donating the remainder of the food the students needed, SBA National for donating the food labels and Asian United for donating the 354 plastic containers.

Congratulations Ms Stringer and the Year 10 students on a brilliant effort to support our community.
