The Good Food Fund is our project to help people in the community who find themselves in the desperate situation of needing emergency food aid. It is an alternative model to traditional food banks which rely on donations of tinned and dry goods from members of the public for distribution to those in need.
Our model uses cash donations to provide fresh food and store cupboard staples to those in need. This means rather than supermarkets profiting from people buying for food banks we can use our position as a retailer take away the retail margin and make cash donations go further.
We primarily partner with The Space in Govanhill who have volunteers that come to us each week to pack up boxes of fresh vegetables and groceries for distribution to local families. We also send fresh vegetables to Glasgow South West Food Bank every Friday along with store cupboard staples on an occasional basis.
We are keen to extend what we can offer but can only do this with donations from people like you. You can donate by bank transfer, cash or cheque made out to “Good Food Fund”. Our bank details are:

Please consider setting up a standing order to the account above as regular donations enable us to plan for the future and supply food regularly.
