Alastair Blackstock, chairman of Falkirk Foodbank appeals to the Falkirk community for donations

Alastair Blackstock, chairperson of the food bank’s trustees, said: “We are experiencing an increase in requests for our help, whether it be due to energy costs or cost of living increases.

“These requests are making inroads to our stock which must be kept at a reasonable level to enable the Foodbank to help.”

He said that all types of goods are needed, including halal foods and those for diabetic needs.

Mr Blackstock thanked those, including companies and stores, who already make donations.
