Donate Food

Help food-insecure individuals by donating supplies to CFINE.

Poverty overshadows the lives of over one million people in Scotland, including 240,000 children. Members of our community are going hungry and struggling day in day out to make ends meet. Together, we can offer a helping hand to families experiencing food insecurity.

The food that you donate will go directly to people in immediate need. Helping families access food will allow us to continue working together with them on the underlying issues they are experiencing and offer them a hand-up.

Between April 2021 – March 2022, CFINE distributed over 22,000 food parcels and from April 2022- 2023 CFINE distributed 35,307 food parcels to people in need in Aberdeen. A significant part of the food distributed by food banks is donated by everyday heroes like you. That’s why your donations play a vital part in alleviating the pressure on families facing food insecurity.
