The Assynt food bank is now up and running, and deliveries of regular food parcels have begun.

Please do make use of this service if you are struggling with accessing enough nutritious food at this hard time.  No-one in Assynt need go hungry.

Contact Bill Wardley-Smith, manager of the Assynt Centre, on 01571 844144, to arrange/enquire.

He will ask for some basic info to assess your need, and note dietary requirements.

Thanks to Assynt Leisure Centre for offering use of the leisure centre for this new service, and to Connect Assynt for help in set-up.

People can volunteer to help with the Food Bank, by contacting Andy Summers, of Highland Highlife, who is acting as foodbank volunteer coordinator.
