The Trussell Trust runs the largest network of foodbanks in the UK, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis. Thirteen million people live below the poverty line and in the last year we gave 1,583,668 three-day emergency food supplies to people in crisis.
Our Community kitchen project has launched this Saturday, 1st June, thanks to a funding partnership between the Trussell Trust and Asda Foundation. This weekly project will be hosted in the Ardrossan Church of the Nazarene each Saturday between the hours of Noon and 3.00pm up until the 30th November. If those attending enjoy the project we will seek additional funding to keep it going. The Foodbank is seeking to address food insecurity over the weekend in response to the concerns of the North Ayrshire Food Forum. It is our hope that individuals and families will come along and enjoy the socialisation as much as the food. It is an opportunity for the community to come together to prepare and enjoy a meal mutually. Together we will set-up, prepare, eat and clear away. It is to be emphasised that this is not a cafe and that we will all muck in together to create a create mealtime event. Although food will be the main focus, we will, if attendees like, have some entertainment, especially for the children. The first few weekends will be for those coming along to identify menus as well as the type of programme they would appreciate to enhance the experience.
