Your dedication to the well-being of our community has been a beacon of generosity, and we are profoundly thankful for the support you have provided.

This remarkable contribution equates to more than 941 wholesome meals, nourishing both body and mind. Since January 2023, Brookfield partnership has enabled Chesterfield Food Bank to provide 3-day supplies of emergency food and essentials to a total of 10,922 people. Among them are 7,753 adults and 3,169 children.
The impact of your contributions extends far beyond the numbers; it is a testament to the collective compassion of our community. By working together, we have made a significant difference in the lives of individuals and families in need, ensuring they have access to essential resources during difficult times.
As we express our gratitude for your selfless giving, we also acknowledge the lessons of empathy and community responsibility that your school is instilling in the hearts of students. Your commitment to social responsibility is shaping not only academic minds but also compassionate and caring individuals. Thank you.
Looking forward to the new year, we are excited to continue this meaningful partnership with Brookfield Community School. Together, we can build a community that cares for one another and works towards the common good, as we continue our mission to end the need for foodbanks.
Thank you for your invaluable support and the positive impact you've made on the lives of so many.”
