On Friday pupils from Kemsley Primary Academy handed over 7 huge baskets of produce to the Family Food Bank as part of their annual harvest festival celebrations.
During the service special guest Rev George Rogers, the Priest in Charge at the Holy Trinity Church gave a short sermon to the children explaining the purpose behind their kind donations and how this would benefit many families in Swale.

The Family Food Bank which was created less than three years ago operates from a centralised warehouse located in Ashford and helps families in the Ashford, Swale, Maidstone and Thanet districts.
Family Food Bank spokesman Chris Norman told us “The donations are absolutely essential to our operation. The school’s input is extremely valuable, providing direct links with the local community and the families we help.”
“We don’t work in the same way as other food banks and have a number of outlets throughout the region including facilities at Grove Park Children's Centre , Woodgrove Children’s Centre, Murston Children's Centre and Milton Court Children's Centre in Sittingbourne where a food box voucher then it can be exchanged for a food box that can feed a family for 4 or 5 days”
