Foodbank Letter
11th November 2019
Kirkcaldy Foodbank

We have received the following letter from the Kirkcaldy Foodbank:

The Kirkcaldy Foodbank steering group have asked me to thank you for your recent generous donation which is so welcomed and vital to our aim of feeding those who are hungry in the Kirkcaldy area. We are continually thankful and humbled by the huge community effort which enables us to provide emergency food parcels weekly.

As a volunteer organisation which is dependent on donations we are struggling to respond to the chronic food poverty in our area. The ever increasing demand is putting a strain on our resources and we fear that we may on occasion run out of food and have to turn needy people away and signpost them to agencies that have a statutory duty to assist, knowing that they are also at breaking point. Something has to change.

However the Foodbank began because people like you couldn’t stand by and wait for change while others were going hungry in our area. We may not be able to help everyone but can make a difference to many. With our grateful thanks again and the sincere hope that we will see a change both nationally and locally ..... an end to the reality of the need for foodbanks in this day and age so that families and individuals can avoid the crisis points which give them few options but to come to us for help.

Your continued support and encouragement is so greatly appreciated.

Kerry Horsburgh (on behalf of Kirkcaldy Foodbank)

Free Sanitary Products are now available at Bennochy - As part of the Scottish Government's strategy to tackle Period Poverty, funding was sought to purchase sanitary products.

As Bennochy Church opens its doors to the wider community through our youth organisations, Olive Branch Community Café, Community Choir and other groups, we were successful in a bid to receive products. Free sanitary products are now available in all toilets in the building, including the gents. Please take what you need for you and your family.

If more are required, please contact Louisa Turner, Development Worker, as we have extra supplies and can request more.
