Letham4All, working with Perth and Kinross Council, have gained access to a vacant shop premises at 111 Dunkeld Road. To test demand for the project, local volunteers aim to open the project 2 days a week initially, Monday and Thursday from 11.00am -1.30pm. This will be reviewed after the first 4 weeks running the project.
All donated food stuff will be offered free of charge and people accessing the initiative can purchase up to 10 items/packages at a cost of 20p from goods purchased through Fareshare. All people who want to use the project will need to complete a simple form when the first visit the shop.
Building on the success of the Fridge4All Project based at the Letham Community Hub, the Muirton Food Share initiative aims to help reduce food waste and offer people access to free and low cost food to support them during and after the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic in the Muirton area of North Perth City. Through the collection of food donated to the Fridge4All project, excess will be made available, and also from stock from the project’s Fareshare deliveries.
