Breadalbane Community Larder – Update
As you may know, Breadalbane Community Larder has been Aberfeldy Co-op’s ‘FoodShare’ partner since March 2020, taking ‘Best Before’ and ‘Use By’ food which would otherwise be thrown away or sent to their bio-digester. We continue to collect these items and have this food available outside the rear of our new premises at Offizone on Kenmore Street for people to come and help themselves during Larder opening times (11.00 am - 12.30 pm each Saturday).
We are currently piloting an extension to this FoodShare initiative, and anyone can access the FoodShare table located at the rear of the church anytime day or night (except during funeral services). All items either have damaged packaging or are past their Best Before date. The key aim of this initiative is to reduce food waste which in turn protects the environment. We all have a responsibility to reduce our impact on the current climate crisis and this is one small way we can help.
Alongside the ‘FoodShare store’ on a Saturday morning, customers can come to the Larder (at Offizone) and collect items from the stock indoors, for a nominal fee. This reduces the stigma and helps maintain customer dignity.
Emergency deliveries of food parcels will also continue. This service can all be accessed by calling 0345 30 111 00 Monday to Friday 9.00 am – 5.00 pm.
If you know of anyone struggling to make ends meet, please let them know about the support 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
We recognise that for many the current restrictions and uncertainty can make life very stressful. The ministry team can offer pastoral support, but for a few this may not be enough. Perth and Kinross Council have an excellent directory of services. You can type in:
