Glasgow’s Golden Generation is Glasgow’s leading charity for older people with all round care and support; supporting 2000 people to live life as fully and as independently as possible. The charity’s Day Care Centres offer friendship, a sense of belonging, the opportunity to learn new skills, take part in organised activities and enjoy a hot, nutritious, freshly cooked meal. Funding from Scotmid will be used to purchase the fresh local ingredients needed to deliver a balanced menu.
The People’s Pantry Foodbank is based in Coatbridge and is a partnership between a number of local churches. Run by a team of dedicated volunteers, the food aid is offered to all those experiencing food insecurity either as a one-off emergency supply or on a more regular basis if required. The funding from Scotmid will be used to purchase a serviced container to enable a larger quantity of food to be stored and accessed when needed.
