Students & Staff make Stacks of Sandwiches

The Geelong College's student leaders and staff have volunteered to make 950 sandwiches for disadvantaged children in the Geelong region.

Continuing our partnership with Eat Up Australia, our first Eat Up sandwich-making workshops were held on Friday 16 February around lunchtime. Senior School staff went first, making 400+ sandwiches in just over half an hour.

The staff were followed by student leaders from both the Middle and Senior schools combining to make the rest of the sandwiches. It was a great chance for the younger students to meet and share ideas with their Senior School counterparts.

The sandwiches were then delivered to about 15 schools in the Geelong region by College parents Carli Roulston and Simon Mitchell, and Eat Up facilitator Steve.

Eat Up is an Australian not-for-profit which provides healthy lunches for children who go to school without food from home. They receive many of their ingredients and materials as donations, and the wholemeal bread used in our workshop today was bought using a grant from Give Where You Live / Feed Geelong.
