East Lothian Foodbank provides a valuable service in giving short-term assistance to people in our local area who suffer from food insecurity. This can happen to anyone, if a crisis such as unemployment, illness or family breakdown occurs. Preston Lodge has helped the East Lothian Foodbank this year by donating food and raising over £400 towards the costs of providing this service. Now there is an opportunity to provide additional, individual support.
East Lothian Foodbank is holding two food collection days at Tesco in Musselburgh, Haddington and North Berwick on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th July. They require volunteers to help on these days. Volunteering involves handing shopping lists to customers and sorting the food as it is handed over.
