Cranford care home in Aberdeen is supporting Community Food Initiatives North East (CFINE) this winter by opening a donation drop off point within the home.
Staff, residents, family members and the public are being encouraged to bring their contributions in to the home to be redistributed to less fortunate families during the colder months, in particular non-perishable items.
As part of the initiative, staff and residents at Cranford chose to contribute to CFINE Foodbank, supporting those in need at what can often be a more difficult time of year.
Michelle Paterson, home manager at Cranford care home, said: “At Cranford, were proud to be part of our local community. It’s important to all of us at the home that we support good causes in Aberdeen.
“The volunteers at CFINE Foodbank do an amazing job and we’re pleased to be able to get behind their amazing work.”
Edna Mathews, resident of Cranford, added: ““I can’t believe that in this day and age, people are still going hungry.
“We’re pleased to be able to make a contribution, however small, to make sure that nobody in our area is left without food on the table.”
Community Food Initiatives North East is open on Monday - Friday at 10am – 4pm.
