Castle food bank and recipes

At Castle Academy we have a food bank which is used to support local families who are facing financial difficulties.  If you require the support of the food bank please come to the school office, call the office on 01604 638670, or email

We welcome donations which can be dropped off at the school office.


At Castle Academy, we have a food bank available for all families and the local community. To access this service, please contact the Inclusion team through the school office, or speak to any member of staff in school and they will be able to signpost you to the right people.


This week, we have plenty of pasta and rice but we are running low on most other things.


We are still in need of: · crisps · cereal · biscuits · squash/cordial · tinned vegetables · toiletries


As always, we are incredibly grateful to receive any donations through the office or classrooms and are hugely appreciative of all the support this service receives.
