Eilean Siar Foodbank

Eilean Siar Foodbank opened in September 2013 as a partnership between New Wine Church and the Trussell Trust.  We are very grateful for the help we  receive from other local churches, agencies, and businesses, and the generosity of fellow islanders who donate the food that is distributed to those in need.

The Foodbank is an extension of an emergency food delivery service that the church had been providing across the islands for the previous three years in response to referrals from various agencies.  The opening of the Foodbank has enabled us to reach and assist a wider group of  people who are experiencing a food crisis with a more streamlined service.

From 15th November 2019 our partnership with the Trussell Trust is coming to an end as the administrative burden has become very difficult to maintain without a full-time manager. We are very grateful to the Trussell Trust for the support they have provided over the years and we pray that they will continue to be an effective force in alleviating food poverty nationwide.

Although our partnership with the Trussell Trust is ending we are continuing as Eilean Siar Foodbank and hope to both develop existing and form new partnerships with other local churches and agencies in a combined effort to offer a hand up to individuals and families in our community who are experiencing financial hardship.

As always, the Foodbank could not continue to operate without the amazing generosity of those who donate food. We are also grateful for our faithful volunteers without whose dedication we could not offer this service. We are continually recruiting volunteer staff and are always open to suggestions re fundraising, etc.
