Kirkcaldy Foodbank would like to thank you on behalf of the volunteers and those who find themselves in the desperate position of having to seek help from the foodbank.
The number of client visits to the Foodbank has remained
over 600 since November 2017 (other than in December,
when the Foodbank was closed for over a week);
in April 2018 it was over 700 for the first time;
and in May 2018 it was over 800 (805) for the first time.
Our aim continues to be to feed those families and individuals who are hungry and cannot afford to feed themselves for a variety of reasons. Times are tough and some people in the local community are struggling to put food on the table. There are so many other financial demands to keep a roof over their heads. Some may be working but simply not able to survive on the minimum salary they receive – others may be temporarily out of work and falling into the ‘pit’ of delayed or sanctioned benefit payments.
If anything this crisis has increased since we set up and your donations of food are very much appreciated and vital if we are to continue to tackle it until other avenues can be found to ensure people do not find themselves in these critical situations.
