Scottish wholesaler JB Foods is supporting a new foodbank launching in Midlothian near Edinburgh.
The foodservice wholesaler, which is a member of Caterforce, provided complimentary food on the foodbank’s launch day, alongside the likes of Marks & Spencer and Asda.
Run by Food Facts & Friends, the food bank is the second of its kind for the charity, with JB Foods already supporting the cause’s first foodbank by supplying short dated stock.
Commercial director Charlotte Thompson said: “We’ve been an active supporter and supplier to Food Facts & Friends for almost a year now, so it’s great to see the organisation growing in the region as the work it does is vital.
“The second foodbank will allow the charity to help even more people and families that are in need. We will continue to support Food, Facts & Friends as part of charitable endeavours across Scotland,” she added.
