Dear Supporters,

Thank you all for your recent donations of food, gifts

and money. We appreciate your ongoing support throughout the year. The need, unfortunately, shows no sign of abating and your kindness helps make life a bit easier for many in the Stewartry.

Thanks to your amazing generosity, 55 local families and individuals received a Christmas food box packed with extra treats, presents, sweets and crackers.

Having filled 55 Christmas boxes, our supplies are fairly low and we welcome donations of any foodstuffs and toiletries. It is a great help to the sorting team if food can be clearly marked with an expiry date.

Your donations continue to be gratefully received, especially in these winter months when heating bills are high, so thank you, as always, for your generosity.

With all best wishes for 2022
Carol McQuistan Stewartry Food Bank team.

This last year has been as busy as ever, over the year we have made up 400 food parcels, helping 610 adults and 304 children. In the run up to Christmas we made up 55 Christmas parcels, which included seasonal food, presents, and crackers for each adult and child. We have a dedicated team of volunteers who work on a rota basis to make up the parcels when needed, and drivers who deliver them. We are so grateful to the local stores who have collection points for anyone to

donate.We would like to thank you all so much for the donations both goods and financial that come in each month, to help us provide the food parcels to those who need them in the Stewartry.
