Last week, along with Jamie Hepburn MSP, I caught up with Lesley and the team at Kilsyth Community Food Bank – and of course handed in some much needed donations.
Kilsyth Community Foodbank has been supporting the local community for many years, and there is no doubt pressure is growing on their vital services.
Around the country, the UK Government’s roll out of Universal Credit has pushed so many more people into hardship and our local area has been no exception.
If you are able to, please support the work of our local foodbanks. Without them, so many people simply wouldn’t have access to the food they need.
Donations for Kilsyth Community Foodbank can be dropped off at the following locations in the town:
• Café Refresh
• KCC Kids Club
• The Lighthouse
Residents in Banton can also hand in donations at the shop in the village.
Donations can of course be dropped off directly at the foodbank at 1 Parkfoot Street at the following times:
Monday: 12.00 – 2.00pm & 6.00 – 8.00pm
Wednesday: 12.00 – 2pm
All donations of food are very welcome, but in the run up to Christmas they are particularly low on fresh food such as eggs, sausages, bacon and mince.
You can keep up to date with the work of the foodbank via their Facebook page here:
