Many of you will be aware of Community for Food, a local initiative set up at the start of this year to help local families in need with food provision. Families with young people attending Currie and Balerno High Schools, Deanpark, Currie, Nether Currie and Juniper Green Primary Schools are all covered, referral is made to us from the Schools. Since January up to 50 families a week have been assisted with fresh food and larder provisions, toiletries and cleaning products. We accept donations of food at Juniper Green Village Hall every Saturday from 11am – 12 noon and we also have a paypal account for donations for fresh food. Every penny donated goes to supplying food to the families, however, our funds are now really depleted and we currently only have enough left to supply fresh food for the next couple of weeks. We are therefore reaching out to our school community and families to ask, if you are able, could you help by giving a small donation? Or do you work for a Company that might consider a donation? Our paypal address for donations is Community for Food (paypal.com) or feel free to contact us via our Facebook page or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Many thanks.
