Clevedon School has launched a pop-up fruit and veg shop to support families who are in receipt of free school meals.
Since opening the shop, the school’s stock has expanded with donations from the community and local businesses.
Looking out for students whose families might need extra support, and overwhelmed by people’s generosity, headteacher Jim Smith, said: “We are constantly looking to help students and families in every way possible. It was in this spirit that we came up with the idea of helping to provide fresh fruit and vegetables for families.
“We have been overwhelmed by the community response and are so thankful to everyone that is helping out.”
Head of pupil premium, Chloe Wilde, said: “We are just looking to do all we can to support families at this time and the provision of fresh fruit and veg is a key part of keeping students fit, health and ready to learn.”
