West Dunbartonshire Community Foodshare is a Scottish, regulated charity (Charity No:SC044248) set up in April 2013 in a time of crisis. We provide food parcels to residents of West Dunbartonshire in need. We also have a Christmas Toybank, a Back to School Uniform Bank, a Babybank and do School Holiday Brunch Bags. We are also in partnership with some energy providers helping with fuel poverty.
Until January 2020, we are providing cooking sessions within our distribution centres.
Our objective is to assist all those affected by poverty by: providing practical support to the communities of West Dunbartonshire by way of direct distribution of food to any in need; signposting of information, advice and support to the communities of West Dunbartonshire on matters of social wellbeing; raising awareness of the issues affecting the communities of West Dunbartonshire by lobbying and campaigning for changes in government policy decisions on matters of social justice and poverty. The charity can provide support to those experiencing poverty on a short term basis.
Please contact us if you are interested in volunteering with us, we have a wide range of opportunities and something to suit everyone
