We are thrilled that Alexander Community Development has been selected as a central distribution hub for local food projects in Dundee. Our dedicated team works closely with Faith in Community and Dundee City Council to support 25 food banks and we’re hoping to expand our reach across the city as we collect food and essential household items from local suppliers and store them at ACD in Fairfield.
Currently we distribute over £10,000 worth of food to Dundee’s food banks every week, supporting up 4,500 people.
From all walks of life, and through no fault of their own, they can find themselves without enough money to feed themselves and their families. For these people, the local food insecurity projects provide a nutritionally balanced emergency food and support service for local people who are in crisis. As part of a nationwide network of food banks, the projects work tirelessly to help combat poverty and hunger across Dundee.
“The stats prove how hard we’ve all been working and will need to continue to work as cost of living and energy bills hit people even harder. Basically, continued support from ACD will stop us all from collapsing and allow us to keep going” – Anne, The Friary
“The support from ACD is awesome and the idea of a centralised hub for distribution of food through them is vital for us. We had to stop getting surplus food because it became impossible for us to continue due to staff shortages, logistics of pick-up times (having to take the kids with me in the car in the evenings!). Without all of the support, we won’t be able to continue at Lochee or at LinkUp.” – Pam, Lochee Hub
