1668 Food Pantry Request

I’ve been asked by Angela, the link worker of Cafe 1668 for a bit of help stocking their food pantry shelves.  At the moment the cupboard is nearly bare and they would be really grateful for donations of canned goods to support folk in need.  If anyone can please spare some of the following goods I’ll collect them this Sunday 26th .  I’d like in the future to organise a more regular collection.  This is separate to the Blythswood foodbank which you so kindly support.  If you’re not around this Sunday, please feel free to drop something in at 1668 on Church street.

the list of requested items are:

Pasta sauce

Tinned veg


Meals in a tin




TeaLoo roll

Cleaning supplies

Many thanks,

James Bissett
