Dingwall Food Share has been working with families struggling with food poverty since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to an incredible amount of support from the local community, we are able to say we have responded to every single request we've received this far.
However, we recently had to face the stark reality that many local families are not going to have a Christmas Dinner this year. For these families, money is simply too tight. This really took the wind out of our sails for a while...... but... we've talked a lot, planned a lot and now we're back and ready to take on 'The Christmas Dinner, Dingwall' project.
Our plan is to provide a hot Christmas Dinner for every person in the local area who otherwise would not be able to afford one. The lovely ladies in the Academy office have again volunteered to manage the crowdfunding account, we have a team of delivery drivers who have kindly volunteered their service and we have a plan in place with a local professional kitchen to ensure the meals are prepared and transported safely.
Our next big step, is raising funds to pay for the dinners. If you are able to, please help us by making a donation to this local Christmas project. Every single penny we receive will be spent on providing dinners, the Food Share has no administration costs and all the volunteers donate their time and fuel for free. Thankyou and Merry Christmas x
