News: Raising Funds to Feed Dundee
Dundee Volunteer and Voluntary Action are working with local emergency food providers in Dundee to ensure communities are provided for during this time of COVID-19.
Supported by Faith in Community and Dundee City Council, voluntary organisations throughout the city have amassed a pool of volunteers to help the most vulnerable receive food and medication in response to the restrictions imposed due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Now having created a strong community response, food banks and larders are calling on the wider Dundee community to donate to support this effort.
Dundee Volunteer and Voluntary Action Chief Exec Eric Knox said “The emergency food provision across the city is vitally important to supporting the communities in Dundee. This funding will go directly to support volunteers and volunteer sector organisation deliver much needed food the most vulnerable adults and children across the city. This will be a real lifeline for people in unbelievably difficult time.”
Working with existing organisations who are shaped around local needs Alexander’s Community Development has been selected as a central distribution hub for local food projects allowing a joined-up approach to the response needed.
We are all experiencing difficult times just now due to the outbreak of COVID-19. DVVA are trying to assist those who are struggling most in various ways. We are working alongside many local voluntary sector food provision organisations and community groups to co-ordinate emergency food distribution to those individuals and families who need it. Any donations will help us to reach more people in our city.
Funds raised via www.justgiving.com/campaign/cv19fooddundee will be distributed across existing food providers to extend the reach of provision across Dundee.
