 Veronica is the convener for our local independent foodbank which serves the Eastern Borders and it is made up of an active team of volunteers based in Duns. She described how, through the church, they started nearly four years ago and built up the foodbank. Unlike other foodbanks, the provisions have been adapted to meet the immediate needs of the people referred, including some fresh products and for babies. The demand is very variable on a month to month basis and currently the donations are just about keeping pace. Collections are made at local churches, the Eyemouth High School and Eyemouth Rotary Club.
