“The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.”
We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why Caithness Foodbank provides three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to it in crisis. Caithness Foodbank is affiliated to Highland Foodbank (Blythswood Care) part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
The Foodbank Centres are at:
13 Princes Street, Thurso KW14 7BQ
Open Tuesdays & Fridays 12.00-2.30pm
Carnegie Library Building, Sinclair Terrace, Wick KW1 5AH
Open Tuesdays & Thursdays 12.30 – 2.30pm
Thurso Baptist Church members regularly support the Foodbank in the form of volunteering, monetary donations, food donations and premises.
There is a basket at the back of the church for food donations.
If you are interested in getting involved in anyway then speak to Jan or Phil.
The video below was made by two of our church members for a school competition where they won £3,000 for the Foodbank, which has enabled it to build a storage shed.
