On her recent visit to the FoodBank, Liz topped up donations with more toothpaste (2 tubes already donated) and sets of toothbrushes, having read a newspaper article about families sharing a single brush; Foodbank staff confirmed that this is the case and they have to constantly supply these (ie ‘this is not a newspaper invention’ / ‘fake news’).
We were once again thanked for our continued support.
The need remains:
- In 2018, 9,500 people in Dundee and surrounding areas were helped with food provision.
- Currently 180 persons are served every week and can only access this service on three separate occasions over a six month period.
