About The Bo’ness Storehouse Foodbank
The Bo’ness Storehouse Foodbank was set up in September 2012, before achieving registered charity status in 2015, and provides approximately 2,297 packs of food aid to 106 different households annually in Bo’ness.
Last Christmas (2022), a total of 54 special Christmas food hampers were delivered to those in need in the local area.
Those requiring food aid are referred to the Storehouse by the various social care organisations in Bo’ness and Falkirk District. On receiving a referral, we deliver weekly food packs to the referred household for a 6-week period. The amount of food in these packs will vary depending on the number of inhabitants in the referred household and what fresh food we have been able to obtain. We are also able to provide an emergency food delivery, when the need arises.
The Bo’ness Storehouse is an independently managed and operated organisation, run entirely by a team of local volunteers. We are able to fund operations using donations from the community and applying for grants and other available, relevant funding.
Storehouse can be reached via email at email@example.com.
