Emergency meals: Sunday we are helped by Pret and Gregg's, but they can’t help with enough for our rising numbers, so we always need more. We offer cooked them chilled, or sandwiches/salads chilled, which are kept chilled and ready to eat. Including sausage rolls, pastries, muffins, doughnuts, cookies and more. We are very keen to find other local HSE registered providers in the area. Our goal is by offering these sealed and sterile options, they can cause no harm.
URGENT FOR TOMORROW: Pot noodles, Pot Rice, Cup a soup, Pot Pasta – which can be opened sterile and served hot from our flasks with boiling water.
ARE YOU a local business, café, restaurant, charity or group – could you help tomorrow by coming along with your food and serving some hot food such as the Amazing Aberdeen Muslims Food box, we had Weds, the Amazing Sarah Soups & Sweets we had Weds before. WE urgently need you tomorrow, happy to help you too, by supporting local. THAT IS WHAT community is all about, we can do it by helping each other out, #supportlocal
