£610raised of £1,000 target by 30 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,000 to help raise fund towards food for our food parcels that help so many people in our community.

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
