Duns Food Bank/Fair Share - April 2024 update

Duns Food Bank  In April the Food Bank responded to 39 referrals from agencies, helping 82 people (61 adults, 21 children) and 29 pets.


We are always grateful for your donations of food and at the moment would particularly appreciate any of the following items:


Canned meals (meatballs, hot dogs, Irish stew, chicken chunks etc.)

Corned beef, ham, tuna

Breakfast cereals – e.g. Corn Flakes

Canned fruit and vegetables 


Noodles/Pot noodles

Sugar (500 g bags)

Toilet rolls


Community Larder  We continue to build a stock of surplus frozen, chilled, fresh and non-perishable food. A great deal of this food might otherwise be disposed of to landfill and we encourage everyone in Duns to come along and do their bit for the environment by making the most of delicious food that might otherwise go to waste. Minimum donation £1.


Social Internet Café  The Café offers hot drinks and snacks, on a Pay As You Feel basis, in a warm and welcoming environment with free Wi-Fi. In addition, in collaboration with Citizens Advice Bureau and SBC’s What Matters Hub, the Café acts as a ‘One Stop Shop’ where customers can get help and advice on a range of issues including energy costs, health, money matters, accommodation etc. 


The Larder and Café are located at 15 Murray Street, just off Market Square, and open 10.00 am – 12 noon, Tuesdays and Thursdays.  


Finally, we have just heard that our application to the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) to become a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) has been successful. More on this in the next update.


As always, many thanks for your continued support.


Best wishes,


David Adams
