The FoodShare table at the rear of Aberfeldy Parish Church is open 24/7 and often has a variety of goods which would otherwise be sent to the Co-op’s bio-digester. It’s our Christian responsibility to ‘tend the garden’ ie our planet so we can all do our bit to reduce food waste by ‘shopping’ at the FoodShare table from time to time.
Remember, this part of the Larder project is about reducing food waste as well as supporting those feeling the pinch in these difficult times.
If you know of anyone struggling to make ends meet, please let them know about the range of options provided by Breadalbane Community Larder.
The Larder is a joint initiative of several local churches and also involves members of the local community. If you would like to be involved, please contact the team on 07513 652597 or email email@example.com
