The funding provided by Cunninghame Housing Association helped replenish stock – fresh produce, store cupboard favourites, home baked items and toiletries. Given the struggles people are facing at present, with the cost-of-living crisis and fuel poverty, every contribution to such a service as this is more important than ever.
Once again, given the current climate and the challenges people face with the cost-of-living crisis we are delighted to be able to provide financial assistance to the Ardrossan South Food Larder to support with the ever-increasing costs these services face as well as the increasing demand this creates.
