The King’s School Gloucester opens its kitchen for local food charity

The King’s School in Gloucester has opened its kitchen to local charity, The Long Table, enabling it to cook over 600 meals for NHS workers and those in need.

The King’s School in Gloucester has brought the local community together to donate meals to NHS workers, as well as vulnerable groups and individuals.

Teaming up with Stroud-based charity, The Long Table, as well as Ben Creese County Butchers and Thomas Franks Caterers, The King’s School has cooked over 600 meals so far.

Sixth Form pupils have also got involved, volunteering in the kitchen alongside the chefs to show support for their community.

The school’s Design and Technology staff have pulled together too, to make and deliver over 230 face shields, as well as gloves and face masks, to Gloucester Royal Hospital and local care homes – in additon to 176 masks destined for Sue Ryer Hospice.

David Morton, headmaster, said: ‘The last few weeks have been very challenging for us all, but in a school with such a long history in Gloucestershire, King’s families are proud to be contributing in our own small way’.
