Inspire Multi Academy Trust

27th August 2019

In the last week of the school year, Lesley Cassidy, Headteacher at Plains Farm Academy, coordinated a fantastic donation of much needed food items to Sunderland Foodbank and got all 5 academies in their trust involved. Each academy collected 2 different items for us. A driver from our sister Foodbank in Durham spent 3.5 hours driving to the academies to pick up food. Needless to say, the van was bulging at the seams.

The GRAND TOTAL of donations was……

917.89 kilos

This would make


3 day emergency food parcels


make a MASSIVE

734 meals

Sunderland Foodbank would like to say thank you, thank you, thank you to

  • Plains Farm Academy
  • Farringdon Academy
  • Fatfield Academy Inspires
  • Burnside Primary School and
  • New Penshaw Academy

We look forward to working alongside you in the next academic year 🙂
