COVID19 Response

The COVID19 outbreak has been devastating for us here on Skye and from the outset the first question for every voluntary group was how we could best serve our small, fragile Communities.

So what are we up to at the Broadford and Strath Community Company …..

From early April our volunteers picked up excess stock from the COOP and provided a Food Share at the Broadford Village Hall.  The Food Share ran from 9.40pm six nights per week.     The Food Share was a success and we knew that the Project needed to be developed so with  funding support we have opened our Community Fridge.  

The Community Fridge is open 6 days a week from 9am till 7pm and is stocked with excess food mostly from the COOP.  We plan to develop partnerships with more contributors in the coming months.  The Community Foodbank also have storage space in the Community Fridge building and can supplement any food parcels going out with the excess food.  

On Wednesday afternoons Broadford and Strath Community Company coordinate volunteers who deliver meals to over 110 homes in Broadford and Strath as part of our Meal Share.  Along with the meal is freshly picked salad grown in our Community Allotments at the Growers Hub.

Since we have begun approximately 1500 individuals have benefitted from our Food and Meal Share initiative.  None of this would have been possible without the support of the Community and our numerous Partners.   

We expect the after effects of COVID19 to last for a long time so we plan for continued food growing and food sharing in the Community.  

If anyone would like to either receive something as part of the Food and Meal Share please just call 01471 820 094 or email mail@broadfordandstrath.org.
