Kirkcaldy Foodbank was set up almost 5 years ago to address increasing levels of food poverty within the town. Since it's inception, demand for support has increased rapidly with many clients citing the changes in the benefit system as the main reason for forcing people and families into food poverty. That said, we also see people in work who have had various benefits stopped or reduced as well as number of people finding themselves struggling on a basic state pension. We are a 100% voluntary organisation that is supported by those who can in the Kirkcaldy area by volunteering and the donation of food and our only expense is the purchase of food to make up the shortfall in donations in order to meet demand. We raise money for this by fundraising and also by the generosity of many individuals and businesses who donate cash by standing order on a regular basis.
We issue between 800-900 parcels every month form our 5 distribution points, 4 in Kirkcaldy and 1 in Burntisland.
