Galloway grated cheese

Gather with Galloway, FareShare and your local community

We know how rural loneliness and social isolation, together with food poverty are impacting all communities across Scotland, so we want to help make a difference.

Following the success of the ‘Galloway Mac N’ Cheese Monday’ initiative last year in Stranraer and Dumfries, this year we want to go bigger.

In May we launched the ‘Galloway Gathering Project’ to further support charities tackling food poverty and loneliness across Scotland.  We invited local residents to their local community kitchen or café where they could tuck into friendly chats and tasty cheddar.

10,000 free meals to be provided to Scottish residents throughout May

To make these meals even more delicious we supplied 1.2 tonnes of Galloway grated cheese.

Finally, we gave an additional donation of £19,500 in support FareShare’s work across Scotland through its partners FareShare Central and South East Scotland (Cyrenians) and FareShare Glasgow & the West of Scotland (Move On).
