Students at Swindon College have been given a task to redesign the Swindon Foodbank Foodboxes!
This February Swindon Foodbank is launching a very exciting project with Swindon College. Working with the very generous support of GWP Packaging, Swindon College students have been tasked with a real client brief from Swindon Foodbank to design a new box which will be used to carry food from the Warehouse to our Distribution Centres.
As part of the brief the students will not only have to design the box construction and artwork, but will have to meet cost and ecological criteria. Swindon Foodbank are delighted to be involved in such a project and thank Swindon College and GWP group for thinking of us when they came up with the idea.
The students will have to pass close scrutiny as part of the competition, including a Dragon's Den style presentation where judges from GWP and Swindon Foodbank will determine the winner. Not only are there prizes on offer but also the chance for a student to undertake work experience at GWP. This is an ideal opportunity for students to gain a real insight in to the world of work, while also gaining an insight into the work which Swindon Foodbank is doing in their own community. We hope the project will help to raise awareness of Foodbanks within the younger generation.
