B & S Food Hub Supporting the Community

The Badenoch and Strathspey Food Hub have been in Grantown Grammar this week distributing snack bags for our junior pupils. The Food Hub are keen to spread the word that they are here to help any families in the community in need of a little extra help. You do not need to be on benefits, or to be referred, you don’t need to be without food or money in your account, you simply might need a little extra help this month due to a large electric bill or rising petrol prices. Please come along to the Grantown YM Food table where there are lots of food and hygiene items free to take for yourself, a friend or a neighbour in need.

You can find them by:
