Foodbank

The Whiteinch Foodbank is an initiative which aims to reach those most in need in the local community and surrounding areas. The Foodbank runs every Sunday from 1-3pm at Barclay Curle House (739 South Street G14 0BX). We distribute emergency food parcels to those in need of this kind of support. We offer various types of support depending on individual circumstances. The Foodbank is a drop-in service and individuals are welcome to stay for a hot drink as well as selecting items for their food parcel from the food store. Although we operate a voucher referral system with some local agencies, it is not necessary to be referred by an agency.

The vision for the Foodbank is to show practical love and kindness to those who need support. We also hope that we will be able to refer clients to other services for further support when deemed appropriate.

For further information/ any enquiries relating to the Foodbank please contact Rebecca Hutchison at whiteinchfoodbank@gmail.com
