‘Grub Club has been a lifeline for my family’.
‘Without Grub Club I don’t know how we would have survived especially, during the first lockdown’.
‘Karen and the Volunteers are kind; they really do care about us and Grub Club always provides lots of choice and good quality food. Grub Club made me feel better about myself for having to ask for help to feed my children’.
These are real examples of comments received by LCA trustees from members of our community that have used Grub Club in the past or do so presently. Grub Club was originally created by funding from Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Participatory Budget. The concept was to help our community combat ‘Holiday Hunger’ by encouraging and enabling families to access free food, nutritious meals and a variety of activities. A project that is designed and delivered by the community for the community with a focus on welcoming all ages.
But, without the driving force and commitment from our Project Coordinator/Cook, Grub Club would not be the success that it is. Yet, this is a double-edged sword as sadly the larger Grub Club becomes the greater the need for such a service. The Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns has identified more households in need than ever before. We believe Grub Club remains much needed and is vital to help our community recover and thrive. Please give Grub Club your vote and show your support for us to continue to swap, share, care and feed oor weans.
