Students at Cromwell Community College collected food and toiletries to donate to Chatteris food bank.
In the last two weeks of the Christmas term, families, pupils and staff at Cromwell placed items under the Christmas tree in the centre of school, to share with local people.
Rod Doulton and Clive Alexander from the Chatteris Food Bank collected.
A school spokesman said the donations have become an annual collection as part of helping others over the Christmas season.
The Chatteris Food Bank is part of the Trussell Trust Ely Food Bank, working alongside others to reach out to those in crisis in Fenland.
