Foodbanks in Aberdeen provide emergency food and vital support to local people experiencing crisis in Aberdeen City. Every day people go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy, poverty to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income.
The Food Banks Partnership Aberdeen coordinates food banks in the city while guiding users towards services that can help prevent people becoming reliant on these resources.

As well as providing emergency food, all partners are committed to promoting employment, signposting to money advice, debt management and household budgeting services, and other sources of support to develop resilience and help people to move on and out of poverty.
We are currently recruiting Volunteer Drivers to help in our vital work.

If you can spare a few hours to help with this or wish to discuss any other volunteer opportunities we currently have please get in touch.
