The Fuel for School Project was developed as a consequence of a Leeds based school finding solutions of reducing the impact of hunger on its pupils.
Lincoln City Foundation currently work within 4 schools in and around Lincoln Bishop King, St Peter at Gowts, Manor Leas and Nettleham Juniors. We work closely with his church to deliver surplus food which is either used within school or redistributed to their local community at a pay as you feel price.
Since September we have stopped over 7000kg of food going to landfill which equals 16,500 meals that have fed families in our local community. In doing so we have stopped 13,300 CO2-e (kg) work of emissions which is the equivalent of 1,187.50 days of electricity consumption for one household.
“Hunger and poverty prevent children from reaching their potential, affecting concentration at school and leading to illness and disease. It cannot be right that in one of the worlds richest countries, 4 million children live in poverty” Former Education Secretary Justine Greening 17/12/17
