Bournemouth Foodbank


We continue to work hard to provide food to those in our community that need it most. Nevertheless, at the Bournemouth Foodbank, we want to provide help beyond just the basic need for food.

As part of our more than food philosophy, in the past, we’ve held budgeting and cooking courses for people struggling to do so. We want to continue to support the people of Bournemouth, especially during the current pandemic. For this reason, we’re introducing our first online “Eat Well, Spend Less” course.

The course will be six weeks long and will be released as a weekly video with a variety of recipes people can follow along. It will be taught by a couple of our wonderful instructors. Participants will also receive a weekly food parcel with all the ingredients and fresh produce they will need to complete each recipe.

Additionally, we will be providing support during the length of the course on our EWSL Facebook Group. Here they will be able to contact their assigned mentor and ask questions about the recipes. As well as to engage with the community by sharing photos of their dishes and following other participants.

If you wish to take part or know someone who does, find out more about it and apply in the button bellow.

VE Day Friday 8th May 2020

VE Day on 8th May 2020 marks 75 years since the guns fell silent at the end of the Second World War in Europe.

The 75th anniversary is an opportunity to reflect on the enormous sacrifice, courage and determination of people from all walks of life who saw us through the Second World War and brought peace back to Europe . It is a celebration to mark the end of World War Two, lots of people had street parties, went to dances and had a great time!

We have been creating lots of decorations for our street party this week at school. We created our own salt dough medals, cakes and decorations for our  street party. We researched our own wartime recipes and created a huge chalk flag outside our school front entrance to mark our respect. We celebrated by learning songs, dances and eating spam sandwiches! Overall a fantastic day for us all here at Jewell!

Find out about VE Day first using this official powerpoint presentation from the British Legion.
