North Ayrshire Foodbank

Charity description

North Ayrshire Foodbank logo
North Ayrshire Foodbank, established in December 2012, have been serving a growing number of beneficiaries now numbering 5,000 per annum with one third being children under the age of 18. 
The Foodbank also operates a holiday anti-hunger project for children no longer getting their free school meals. The project is called "Make a meal of it". The funds raised are used to cover the annual costs of the holiday programme, £20,000, or the materials used to operate the Foodbank. We have to purchase, with no discount offered, boxes (£1.10 each and we use 2,000) labels, brown parcel tape, inserts, carrier bags (8p each and we currently use around 12,000 each year). Of course we have legal costs to even operate as a charity like insurance, heating and light as well as volunteer expenses. In addition, when stock runs low, we have to purchase items to keep the supplies maintained. On average we expend £7,000 per annum this way. Any assistance financially to maintain the successful support to those in need due to a food crisis is deeply appreciated.

Please donate to support our cause.
