Trafford College
The Community College Kitchen

During the first lockdown, Trafford College knew that many of its students and their families would struggle with food poverty, hygiene poverty and social isolation.

Staff and community volunteers delivered care packages and educational resources to students who needed them. But when students were able to return to campus, it was clear that many were still in need of support.
So, together with its community partners – including The Samaritans, Loudspeaker, The Proud Trust and Bare Necessities – the College officially launched its Community College Kitchen.
The service provides food, personal hygiene products and learning resources - while promoting college and community wellbeing. Crucially, it is helping to address inequalities that may impact future life choices and progression of our students.

The College is working at the heart of its local community, supporting people through challenging times. Being part of the Good for Me Good for FE campaign provides the opportunity to quantify the full impact of this initiative and hopefully inspire other colleges to do something similar.
