“Say Hello and wave goodbye”
Food For Thought Update
July 2018


A big Hello and thank you to Nando’s restaurant in Clydebank, who are supplying us with chicken (and it’s really nice chicken too!) on a weekly basis. We use it to feed the hungry and the lonely usually at our Thursday Community Soup. On Thursday 28th June 53 (!) people enjoyed a roast chicken dinner in the church, despite the competing summer heat outside! It’s brilliant to be able to offer a substantial meal made from such good quality stuff – so far we’ve served up chicken salad, chicken lasagne and roast chicken! The only question is – how many more chicken recipes do I know…. (hmmm)… recipes would be most welcome, folks!

I may publish these at a later date, lol.

Hello again to the Stag’s Head pub in Dumbarton East! They have been brilliant for sponsoring our wee charity in the past and they continue to remember us. Just recently Diane brought us another £515, which they recently raised by holding a pub quiz. (A pub quiz in which the winning team had a certain Roddy Dyer in it!!) Sincere thanks to all who took part and for the continued support we receive.



Hello from all the children in P1, P2 and P3 of Bonhill school. They collected and donated an ENORMOUS pile of food to us. Thank you kids – you have made the world a better place!

Lastly, Goodbye and thank you to Marks and Spencer’s, St James Retail Park. Thank you for having us as your charity of the year last year and for all the wonderful food you provided us with every Wednesday and Thursday. It was wonderful to be able to give such a variety of cakes, treats, and lovely food (not just any food – M&S food!) to people on a weekly basis. Thank you also for the extra food you gave us at Christmas and New Year – the shopping for the Christmas meal was very much reduced because of your generosity.
