A pair of Perthshire foodbanks have continued with efforts to support those most in need despite lockdown challenges.
Volunteers at the foodbanks in Perth and Blairgowrie are striving to ensure no-one goes without basic necessities.
Having faced temporary closure, Blairgowrie foodbank has now been reopened but has altered the way in which it distributes food.
Perth foodbank has seen a decline in the number of volunteers able to assist due to a range of concerns, such as age.
However, the staff and volunteers that remain, including Perth and Kinross councillors Andrew Parrott and Peter Barrett, are working to provide necessities.
Secretary to the Management Committee of Perth Foodbank, Marjorie Clark said: “We are still concentrating on those who, for financial reasons, do not have enough food.
“We are aware that there are many community groups now operating who can help those who can afford food but can’t get out to the shops.
“People continue to make donations in our supermarket collection bins, for which we are very grateful.
“We have also received some very generous financial donations which will enable us to purchase any food of which we run short.”
In Perth, community wardens are helping to distribute parcels to clients who cannot travel to the foodbank and it remains open from noon until 4pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Mr Barrett has volunteered at Perth foodbank since council meetings were cancelled.
He said: “The foodbank provides essential support to prevent people going hungry.
“I want to help maintain that support and to do something practical in the current circumstances.”
He also praised the people of Perth for supporting the foodbank during this time.
He added: “I have been amazed by the generosity of people in Perth with lots of donations coming through local supermarkets, churches and individuals.”
At Blairgowrie foodbank, volunteers are preparing food parcels at the St Catherine’s Centre but service users are having them delivered instead of collecting them.
