Emma Roddick spent Tuesday the 19th of October visiting 6 different community groups in the Inverness area who all share a keen focus on food poverty, support, and helping others.
These groups were: Food for Families, Café 1668, Crown & City Community Cupboard, Inverness Food Stuff, GoodNESS Community Fridge, and Incredible Edible Inverness.
Speaking following these visits, Roddick said:
“It truly was amazing and encouraging to see the level of kindness shown by volunteers and third sector organisations in Inverness.
“Each place had its own unique framework and had an obvious passion for others and the work that they do.
“A lot of work is still to be done surrounding stigma and food poverty. These places are essential resources to so many people who are struggling to make ends meet.
“I want to help tackle core social justice issues and encourage inclusivity during my time as an MSP.
“I believe that these projects are important, and I am glad to offer each of them my support”.
