[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Since Food Train launched in Renfrewshire in October 2013, over 40 local volunteers have donated 4,708 hours of their time to make up shopping orders and delivering to over 140 older people.
Our customers frequently refer to the service as a life line. The majority use the service on a weekly/fortnightly basis, others on an adhoc basis for example, when their families are on holiday or over the winter.
We are almost at capacity with the two vehicles we have, and working on grant applications to purchase a 3rd van for use in early 2015 in order to meet the continuous referrals and demand for the service.
We are delighted to be the first project in Renfrewshire to obtain the Volunteer Friendly Award. If you haven’t already seen this, please enjoy this very short film we made in the summer to celebrate National Volunteers’ Week
