Rising living costs and changes to the benefits system are driving increasing numbers of vulnerable South Lanarkshire families to use emergency food services. Community Link's Food Poverty project provides a community-led and volunteer-driven route out of food crisis through service provision and co-ordination with current food activities across South Lanarkshire.


We also provide support to two Food Co-ops that work closely with other response services, such as  Food Banks, Breakfast Clubs and Community Cafes.
