    Weʼve raised £950 to help raise fund towards food for our food parcels that help so many people in our community.

    Funded on Wednesday, 30th January 2019

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    During December 2017 Kersiebank Community Project (KCP) distributed almost 100 Christmas food

    parcels to local people and families experiencing food poverty. The cause of food poverty is

    complicated and varies with each case, however KCP is highly aware that our local community needs

    help.

    Working with Falkirk Council, Forth Valley Health Board and local Schools we identified those most in

    need and delivered food parcels to them with the help of Falkirk Food Bank, Aldi (Polmont) and

    Richards Family Butcher. Donations from local people also meant we were able to donate Christmas

    presents, toys, clothes and personal hygiene goods.

    KCP is committed to continuing this help in order to assist people and families to break the cycle of

    food (and other) poverty.

    Activities:

     Food Bank

    o KCP will keep a store of non-perishable food that can be distributed to local people

    and families in need

    o KCP will keep a store of personal hygiene goods that can be gifted to local people

    and families

     Cooking Classes

    o KCP has successfully delivered “Coking on a Budget” classes in partnership with

    Forth Valley Health Board. KCP would aim to make these classes free and available

    to local people who would benefit from this activity

    o Donated food would be used to teach local people how to make, nutritious, healthy

    and economical meals for themselves and their families.

     Lunch Clubs

    o KCP would use donated food to prepare free, healthy, nutritious meals for local

    people and families

    o KCP would recruit, train and support volunteers to deliver this service

     Advice & Support

    o KCP would partner with local agencies who can offer advice and support on relevant

    issues including; employment; welfare rights; benefits; parenting; finance &

    budgeting etc.

    o These services would have a presence in KCP during classes and clubs allowing

    people to access support and advice in a safe, non-threatening environment.

    o KCP would signpost people in to wider community activates

    Outcomes:

     Local people and families experiencing food poverty would have a point of contact for

    emergency help

     More local people and families being fed resulting in a reduction in health related issues

     Local people being educated to source, prepare and cook healthy, nutritious meals

     More people accessing advice and information on their rights, benefits and welfare

    entitlements

     An increase in knowledge of how to budget for and buy healthy food

     Engagement of local people as volunteers and increasing their skills, knowledge and

    experience leading to further learning opportunities, training and/or employment.

     The overall reduction of Food Poverty in the Grangemouth Priority area

    Need:

    KCP will be the lead organisation in the planning, development and delivery of the KCP Food Project.

    However KCP needs other organisations to partner with us to provide an effective service. KCP needs

    organisations and/or individuals to;

     Donate food or access to places to receive donations of food

     Provide funds or fundraising opportunities to finance the project

     Volunteer to help run the project

    If you think you could assist or for further information please get in touch with Crawford Bell or

      Nobody ever knows what the future holds. We may one day fall on hard times and need the help of others ourselves. Donating instead of Xmas cards, a card won’t stop someone from starving. Merry xmas x
