Hello. Friday just passed marked the last day of our providing free hot meals to the Inverness community.
With the easing of lockdown measures, the ending of our current funding, Hannah and I returning to work and the school term beginning , now is a good time to pause and focus on the next steps to take. We have learned a great deal over the past 14 weeks and feel that there is more to be done in the months to come, especially with Winter just around the corner (sorry to remind you!). With this in mind we are keen to hear any suggestions about how best to help with food support those who may find themselves having to shield or put into a vulnerable situation by any future lockdown/safety measures. Please message us on this page, any tips or ideas would be much appreciated.
Speaking of appreciation, our sincere thanks go out to all of the wonderful congregation of Hilton Church, our delivery volunteers, our allergen labelling team (writing 200+ labels is not fun!), Simeon Ewing @ Hilton Family Support, Hilton Scotmid, Highland Council, Redshank Catering, Cobbs Fort Augustus, Kit Slater our glamorous Friday evening pot washer and lift giver, the team at Brakes Inverness (beats lugging bags of supermarket shopping up the road) and all those who helped us out with equipment (please message me if you would like it returned, I have lockdown brain and can't for the life of me remember who donated what 😖). Thank you all so much. We have been humbled by everything you have helped with or given. A Friday night meal may seem a small dip in the ocean but we sincerely hope it has helped and cheered up the recipients.
Hopefully this isn't the last you'll hear from us. We aim to open up the cafe at the Lighthouse when it is safe to do so and continue to support the Hilton and Inverness community as need arises.
All the best to you and yours

Hello, hope that you're all well and getting some degree of normality back into your lives.
We've now being sending out meals within the community for 12 weeks (I think!?😕). On average we're now catering for 80+ every Friday. Our thanks go to all of those who give time every week to help us package and deliver the meals.
As lock down eases (fingers crossed) we are looking into ways in which we can develop and continue providing food assistance in the future. As we're both amateurs in this field any recommendations, advice, etc would be much appreciated.
All the best folks.
Hannah and Joe.

Another Friday, another three course menu offering out to over 70 recipients. A well air conditoned kitchen isn't the worst place to spend such a hot, sunny day 😎. We've now had the project up and running for a month and couldn't have done it without the generosity and help we receive every week. Hannah and I can't say it enough, thank you all so much for your continued support and assistance. Extra big thanks to our delivery and food label volunteers and our fabulous Friday evening pot washer.
All the best to you and yours.
Hannah and Joe.

Hello all. Sorry for the lack of updates.
We finally got the food project up and running with the help of lots of volunteers and over the last two Fridays have supplied a three course menu for over 100 recipients.
Many, many thanks to everyone who has helped out in any way. All of the equipment we have been lent has been put to good use. We're chuffed to finally be able to get things rolling and all the help we have received has been invaluable.
All the best folks.

After last night’s news announcement, it is with very heavy hearts that we have decided to put the project on hold for the time being. As a volunteer organisation, we are seeking out the correct guidelines on what to do from here. All food donated so far is being handed over to food banks and we hope to be able to continue with this project if possible at a later day. But at this moment in time, the best thing we can do is follow the advice to stay home.

Stay tuned for updates and stay safe!!!
