Rutherglen and Cambuslang Foodbank
Katharina Nimmo is the manager of our local Rutherglen and Cambuslang Foodbank and some members of our congregation, and other local congregations, are volunteers. Their commitment allows families in need to access food and other essential products at a time in their lives when they are struggling. Your on-going commitment through donations of food ensures this vital service is able to continue.
Currently, the Foodbank require the following donations:
UHT Milk (full fat or semi skimmed)
Tins or jars of meat
Tinned rice pudding
Coffee (small sizes)
If you can also donate large carrier bags, that would be helpful too.
Jesus said: ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
Minister: The Rev Peter W Nimmo 0141 586 2126
