Harvest Festival 2022

Once again, the generous people of Clackmannanshire have risen to the Harvest challenge.

Local schools, churches and care homes have collected bags and bags of supplies for our foodbank.

To date we have collected 1285kg with more collections still to be conducted. In a one-hour period last Friday, we brought 396kg of food into our premises.

All the food donated will be put to good use, helping people in crisis in our local area.

In August alone we delivered 258 food parcels to 318 adults and 221 children. With the current cost

of living crisis, the numbers are likely to increase.

If you wish to donate, you can drop off at our temporary premises at 83 Main Street, Sauchie, FK10 3JR.
