Support the Food Bank Alkmaar and Act2Aid

The student volunteer organization, Act2Aid, is holding it’s 4th annual food drive to benefit Voedselbank (Food bank) Alkmaar. Please consider donating food and bringing it to school Monday, December 9 – Tuesday, December 17. Voedselbank (Food bank) Alkmaar supports local families in need.

Donation Collection
Locations & Dates

Secondary students can leave donated items at the Act2Aid table in the main entrance to the school between December 9 – 17. Volunteers will also be collecting donations in the primary playground during drop off and pick up on these days.

Items Needed

All types of food are appreciated, but the following is the most suitable for the Food Bank:

  • Vegetables in pots or tins
  • Rice
  • Pasta
  • Pasta sauces, curry sauces, ragout sauce
  • Vegetable oil
  • Sugar
  • Jam, preserves
  • Peanut butter
  • Soup in tins or jars
  • Crackers
  • Tea and coffee, diluting juice
  • Tinned fish or sausages

In keeping with the Christmas spirit, chocolate letters, peppernoten and other treats are also welcome. Please make sure there is a reasonable sell-by date on the goods.

Donate Your Time
Volunteers are needed to Collect Donations for Primary.

Primary students can leave their donations in two places. Firstly, they can leave them under the tree outside Nadia Roofthoft’s office. Alternatively, we will collect donations outside the primary gate during drop off and pick up. This is especially helpful for small children whose parents aren’t able to come into the school in the morning (P1-5).

However, we do need volunteers to collect these donations and bring them inside to one of the two aforementioned designated drop off points. Please consider volunteering your time to help collect donations during one of these times.
