The Food Bank Crisis


The need for food banks in Scotland is an ever-present issue. With more than 1,000 referrals made in the last 18 months by our Bureau alone, it is clear that in Stirling many people still continue to struggle with finding the funds to eat and are in desperate need for help. The root of the problem stems from a lack of financial advice offered to those who cannot afford to pay for it. Over half the people going to Food Bank for crisis food support have no electricity or gas to cook and a Fuel Poverty worker located in Food bank is to get them back on supply in the first instance.

Our Plea

Our project, which plans to take place throughout 2019, will aim to help over 1,000 people living below the bread line by employing a Fuel Poverty Outreach Worker to help educate and inform, enable and empower clients to take appropriate action to manage their fuel usage and build their capacity around such via energy efficiency advice and instruction. This is to ensure that those who are gripped by poverty can find their way to financial stability.
