Rumbles shows support for Aberdeenshire Foodbank
Mike Rumbles MSP visited South Aberdeenshire Foodbank in Banchory today to better understand and support their work.
The foodbank, based in Banchory behind the West Church, serves the whole of the southern part of Aberdeenshire from Inverurie over to Braemar and down to the Mearns, providing an emergency stopgap for local people in crisis.
The foodbank accepts non-perishable in-date food, as well as toiletries, as donations to be given to local people in crisis, as well as signposting those in greater need to agencies.
Mike Rumbles said: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to see the support that the Aberdeenshire South Foodbank offer to the people of the surrounding area.
“Helping those in Aberdeenshire who have fallen on hard times is particularly important. With such an important service they deserve all the support they can get. I’ve been very impressed with the hard work and commitment by the volunteers at the foodbank in Banchory.
