Freshstart Pantry food donations

fresh start pantry

Fresh Start Pantry now has a volunteer collections driver who is willing to come and collect any food donations that may have been collected for Fresh Start Pantry.

She volunteers on Fridays, but can be available on other days during the week.

If you have food that needs to be collected, please get in touch using the contact information below.  I can organise a convenient time for her to come and collect any food donations you may have for Fresh Start. I’m afraid she cannot do any other collections, only food items.

For all other donations, the usual system applies – please call the Fresh Start mainline 0131 476 7741 and Admin will make an appointment with you for a donation drop off.
