Three primary schools will team up with the Banbury Community Fridge to help tackle food poverty in town.

Pupils from the Frank Wise, Dashwood Academy, and St Leonards schools will be spending time at the fridge, learning about how it operates and the challenges of those facing food poverty.

Starting with the Frank Wise school this Wednesday, the pupils will be trained on how to hand out food and how to log the fridge’s intake and outgoings correctly.

Founder of the Banbury Community Fridge, Yasmin Kaduji, said: “The children will basically run the fridge. It will be a good way to get them ready for life, offer them important skills, and show them how community food banks work.”
