The latest news from the Stirling branch of Food Train.
It has been a very busy month in Stirling creating new partnerships and celebrating exisiting ones. Our volunteer students from St. Modans were nominated for an award and we are very proud to have started a new partnership with another very good cause 'Let's make it better, Sunlite Cafe' also based in Stirling.
Bruce Crawford, MSP for Stirling, spent some time yesterday volunteering with his local Food Train to deliver essential grocery shopping to older poeple in his constituency.
Several of our volunters received their 5 year long service award so we put up the bunting and ate lots of cake!
Fran was recently invited along to the Round Table Stirling and Bridge of Allan to talk to members about our service and how it benefits vulnerable older persons in Stirling. We had a lovely surprise when Fraser Ingram popped in to let us know they would be donating £700 towards our fund raising efforts for a new van. We really appreciate the support and are grateful that local groups such as the Round Table, support us in helping prevent malnutrion and social isolation in vulnerable older persons. Fraser also mentioned they are looking for new members to keep up the good work, so if any one is interested please have a look at their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/stirlingboaroundtable/. Thank you to all members involved in this very generous donation.
Barclays Bank have offered to match fund our June fundraiser.
To celebrate nutrition and hydration week, we held a tea party for our volunteers to say thank you for helping others in our community to stay healthy
