The Ayrshire (East) Foodbank provides an emergency food provision to local people in crisis.

The service is managed by CVO (East Ayrshire) Ltd and run by trained volunteers who staff a number of distribution points including the Stewarton branch at St Columba’s Church on Tuesdays and Fridays.

The foodbank receives referrals from a number of statutory and third sector partners to ensure that food goes to the most vulnerable people. A voucher is given which is exchanged for food.

When a person comes into the foodbank they are provided with three days worth of food which is non-perishable, nutritionally balanced and tailored to their needs, for example including baby or pet food.

Please help by donating any non-perishable items which can be placed into one of the boxes at the front door of the church or in the Welcome Area each Sunday.

Preferred items
Tinned meats, eg Stew/Mince, Tinned Fish eg Tuna, Salmon, Tinned Vegetables, Pasta Sauces, Pasta, Baby Food, Biscuits, Long Life or powdered milk, Cereals, Toilet Rolls, Toiletries e.g. shampoo/soap.

Opening Hours
