Food Fund - All food and cash donated in Nairn is used in Nairn

The Gurn hears from Tommy Hogg that the Rev Steven Manders has been assured by Blythswood that all food and cash donated in Nairn to the Highland Foodbank goes to the Blythswood depot in Evanton.  It is then returned to Nairn via boxes Blythswood gives to agencies within our community to use as, and when, the need arises.

It would be interesting to get an idea of how many people within Nairn receive food parcels. Does anyone have any accurate and verified figures?

This observer has been meaning to ask that question of Blythswood plus how many parcels per year etc . It would indeed be interesting to get accurate statistics to give us a better understanding of how serious this problem is and therefore enabling the community to react appropriately.
