Badminton School catering department donates surplus food to Bristol charity
At the beginning of lockdown, Badminton School catering department was left with lots of individually wrapped sandwiches to use up. Although some were consumed by staff and pupils who remained on site, it was apparent that far too many had been ordered, not knowing circumstances would change so quickly.
In order for the food not to go to waste, Badminton School contacted ‘Caring in Bristol’.
Caring in Bristol provide food, shelter and companionship to Bristol’s most vulnerable communities and homeless individuals. They work in ‘imaginative and creative ways… with the public and community partners to bring about lasting change in Bristol and beyond’.
Along with the sandwiches, the Westbury-on-Trym-based school, donated other food stuffs surplus to requirements to Caring in Bristol, so that they could be consumed within their date life.
James Lindsay, operations manager, said: “Badminton is so proud to be supporting the local community, even in small ways like this!”
