This week marks a year since the first lockdown. And whilst this isn’t exactly a cause for celebration, Yard Sale Pizza are launching local support initiative that most definitely is. In partnership with Hackney-based schools Elizabeth Selby Infant School (Hackney Road) and Mandeville Primary School (Clapton), the YSP School Voucher Scheme is a community effort to support families in need by treating them to free pizza over the coming months.
This scheme is entirely non-profit. So far, Yard Sale Pizza have raised an astounding £3500 – including their kick-start donation of £1000. The intended goal is £5000, which means they are not far off feeding 2500 pizza hungry children. With your help, however, this aim could be surpassed. Following the success of their NHS Pizza Fund last spring, Yard Sale Pizza now hopes to extend their support network even further by setting up partnerships with more schools in the neighbourhood area.
