Launch of 'Food For Scotland' Project
Updated: May 21
Our charity has been distributing food since 1989, however to specifically increase and focus our efforts – we have started Food for Scotland Project in March, 2018 to give free healthy and nutritious meals to the homeless and low-income people. It is a locally-run food distribution project based in South Lanarkshire, Lesmahagow. We provide hot, nutritious, plant-based meals for those in need.
The mission of 'Food For Scotland' project is to propagate violence-free (ahimsa) living which includes
1) feeding and helping the needy
2) promoting healthy and sustainable diets
3) taking care of the environment
We are distributing free plant-based food at homeless shelters and also at universities. We also organise fundraiser events promoting violence-free diets and lifestyles. All profits from these events go to support our free food distribution and construction of purpose-built kitchen at our organic eco farm in South Lanarkshire (planned for 2021).
