North Ayrshire Foodbank has operated a holiday anti hunger programme for children for the last six years.
As we cannot operate our usual model of getting together we are gearing up to make meals and take them to households with vulnerable children.
If schools do not go back until September that is 23 weeks of making meals.
We estimate that the cost of the ingredients alone will be £12,240!
Any donations to help with this cost will be much appreciated.
Covid19 is impacting North Ayreshire Foodbank in a number of ways
1. We are sadly seeing increased demand across North Ayrshire and only expect this to get higher.
2. We are seeing a reduction in donations as peoples shopping habits are changing.
3. A number of our regular volunteers are from at risk groups so unable to work currently.
We need your urgent help to fund the purchase the food that is required to fill this gap.
How you can help
If you cannot get to these locations then please give to this Crowdfunder project that will allow us to purchase the food we need.
Thanks so much for all your support at this time of need.
More about North Ayrshire Foodbank

'To help people when they are experiencing a food crisis through the provision of a healthy and nutritious food box.'

To enable us to support so many we draw upon the goodwill of donors and volunteers.
