Many thanks for your ongoing support of Cupar Foodbank. Our figures for April – September 2015 highlight that you have helped us to provide 3 days emergency food for 465 people thereby providing 4185 meals. These figures show that there has been an 11% increase in the number of people having to use the Cupar foodbank.
Two of the main reasons for people being referred to the foodbank have been that people are either on a low income and /or their benefits have been changed. Whilst referrals have increased we are fairly certain that we are still not reaching everyone in need and continue to work alongside our referral agencies to identify families in need of support. However we can only do this thanks to the generosity of people like you. Our foodbank was very well stocked during the Harvest period thanks to your generosity but with the Festive period fast approaching and households facing higher fuel bills, our stock will be greatly reduced over the coming weeks.
During the festive period we aim to make Christmas special for everyone by providing Christmas Hampers. Last year we distributed over 80 Christmas Hampers which thanks to the generosity of the people of Cupar and the surrounding area, local businesses, schools and churches; included fresh meat, vegetables, fruit, Christmas goodies and a small gift for children and adults. It is our aim to make this happen again this year but we need your support.
Please see our Christmas shopping list (on the left hand side of this web page) which shows the items we require. You can donate items by dropping them in to Cupar Foodbank or alternatively you donate at the permanent collection point at Tesco , Cupar and we will receive a 30% top up from Tesco. The money raised through the top up scheme helps us to meet the everyday running costs of the foodbank and is of great financial benefit to us.
Many thanks once again, wishing you a very merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year
496 people is the figure since opening and that figure is steadily rising.
