Cala Homes funding boost for Larbert and Stenhousemuir community venture

A housebuilder is helping a community pantry feed those in need.

Cala Homes (West) has revealed the Community Pantry, is run by ‘Keeping Larbert and Stenhousemuir Beautiful' (KLSB) is the latest recipient of its Community Bursary initiative.

The pantry aims to help those who need it most by providing local produce via a community food pantry at King Street, Stenhousemuir where local residents can join, and receive a weekly shopping at a much-reduced cost.

The charity also operates a food bank where we take referrals from Falkirk Council and groups such as NHS Forth Valley, Police Scotland, church groups, councillors, doctors, schools, and welfare support workers.

Sheona McMorran from KLSB said: “We want to say a massive thank you to Cala for the funding we received from its Community Bursary initiative. This money will help the pantry to continue the great work we already do in our local community.

“Poverty affects millions of people in the UK. Poverty means not being able to heat your home, pay your rent, or buy the essentials for your children. The constant stress it causes can lead to problems that deprive people of the chance to play a full part in society. We are delighted to receive this much-needed funding to ensure we can continue to support those most affected.”

The grant will help Keeping Larbert and Stenhousemuir Beautiful run their Community Pantry

Sophie Whittaker, Cala Homes (West) marketing manager, said: “We know the important work the team of volunteers do, especially for families who need it most, so being able to donate this funding to make a difference is fantastic!”
