Voices from FareShare Central & South East Scotland…

FareShare Central & South East Scotland, Granton Youth Centre


“The people we work with are at risk of poor diets and many lack basic cookery skills. We use the food from FareShare to provide a vital service by giving them a hot meal and also by empowering them through our training to make and create their own meals.”
 
Wendy Weir at Granton Youth Centre


What I’ve noticed is that even though our church has always been community orientated, since we began to receive food through FareShare FoodCloud, the environment has become more excitable. You can actually feel a buzz in the air. People are talking and sharing recipes and menus.”
