News & Events
Annabelle Ewing, Regional MSP for Central Scotland and Fife, visited Food Train premises on 11th September to meet staff and to learn more about the services offered in Stirling and the surrounding areas. She was very enthusiastic about the benefits that a shopping and delivery service can bring to an older person's life at home and keen to see Food Train expand across Scotland. Annabelle was complimentary about the dedication and committment of local volunteers who allow the Food Train service to happen 52 weeks a year and will watch with interest to see the developments that lie ahead for the Stirling branch.
After 2 years based in Bathgate it was time to find somewhere bigger and better for our growing service. From Monday 2nd July 2012 our new address is Office 6, Ochil House, Beveridge Square, Livingston, EH54 6QF.
Our new telephone number is 01506 413013.
Food Train Stirling had more than the Jubilee to celebrate on Tuesday 5th June. We reached a major milestone with our 1000th delivery since starting the service in November 2011.
A big thanks to Mr & Mrs West from Killearn who joined us in celebrating this landmark delivery.
This week was also the start of deliveries to our rural customers in Balfron, Killearn, Aberfoyle, Drymen and Callander.
On 18th June 2012 Christine Watt joined Linda and Irene at Food Train West Lothian. Christine will be getting Food Train 'EXTRA' home support service established and helping recruit and support all our wonderful local volunteers.
