Mason’s have been supporting the Dunfermline Foodbank from its large production base in Dunfermline.
For almost 18 months we have provided the charity with secure warehousing and storage space, as well as meeting and training facilities at our Dunfermline location. Nearly 10,000 sq ft of space has been utilised by the Foodbank to collate, store and despatch essential supplies and support out to its branches in Fife (up to 50 tonnes of food) and train volunteers, as well as educate the local community in their work and how they support those who need them most.
Jonathan Astill, Foodbank Manager has used the space well and has helped them plan the next steps in donated food storage and supply. The 18 month support provided has greatly helped the charity and improved its efficiencies. Jonathan Astill stated that the partnership with Mason’s was most welcome and we wish them well in their new premises.
Mark Mason who worked closely with Jonathan said, “it’s been interesting learning about their work and how widespread the need is for them, even in 2018! But time has come to move on and into more appropriate commercial premises, so sadly we must part company and trust the good work continues”.
The Dunfermline Foodbank operate various centres across Fife and have their main opertional base in Dickson House, Dunfermline.
The new Mason head office location will be published shortly!
