Family Food Service


The Family Food Service is a new network of Glasgow-based partners committed to tackling Holiday Hunger. It will provide food to families during the school holidays and outwith normal school hours. The service is currently made up of four partners; Move On, Heart of Scotstoun, Community Central Hall and Annexe Communities, but we hope this network will continue to grow over the next few months. If you are interested in accessing the Family Food Service, or partnering with us, please get in touch.


The service aims to tackle food poverty faced by families in Glasgow, outside of school time. By supporting and promoting community food programmes, which empower people to make healthy choices and encourage communities to share meals, it hopes to improve the health and wellbeing of its service users and reduce the social isolation caused by food poverty and holiday hunger.


The service is to support organisations that have established programmes providing food to families, outwith school time, or those that are interested in doing so in the future.
