North Ayrshire Foodbank are gearing up to start the production of made on the premises meals for distribution via Ardeer and Ardrossan. The North Ayrshire Venture Trust and The Trussell Trust Asda grant system have invested £60,000 for the purchase of ovens and new storage facilities.
We are currently in discussion with local suppliers to see if we can get as close to cost as possible and the discussions are sounding promising. We are unable to name the company at present but the prices are as close to the bone as possible. Once the partnership is confirmed more details will be announced.
In the meantime we are looking for a group of 100 people to enable us to purchase fresh meat / chicken / fish to cook into the meals. The price of these items for 300 meals per week is working our at £11,000 per annum. We are seeking donors who are willing to donate £2 per week. Along with Gift Aid that would provide us with the financial resources to purchase the meat.
If you are able to assist you will find a copy of our Standing Order form on the “Donate” pages along with our Bank details if you use internet banking.
