Foodbank donation thanks to students

June 20, 2022

Our Falmouth Exeter Plus Halls team has delivered a massive 423kg of food to Penryn and Falmouth Foodbank, part of the Trussell Trust network.

The food (mostly dried and tinned goods) is collected as students move out of their accommodation for the summer, or for good, alongside household items which are donated to the British Heart Foundation (Pack for Good campaign).

The Halls team delivered the 16, 60-litre plastic boxes full of unopened tins, packets and jars to the foodbank today (Monday 20 June) and received a written thank you from the Foodbank team.

John Lees, Halls Manager. Said: “We encourage our students to bring all their spare, unopened food to Glasney Lodge as they leave Halls. We have been doing this for a few years now because it cuts waste and helps the wider community.”
