“I get by with a little help from my friends”

Food Waste Initiative

Sutherland Care Forum is here to help a wide variety of people in East Sutherland whose needs are not being met by statutory authorities.

Food Waste Initiative


As part of the food waste initiative and sustainable Sutherland Food project we offer items of food that have been collected from the local Co-op on reaching their ‘display until’ or ‘best before’ date. This food is available free of charge to anyone who comes to collect it from the SCF office, Craig House, Main Street, Golspie during opening times and food is also delivered by the SFC Manager to some vulnerable people to their homes. Thousands of tons of good quality edible food goes to landfill every day while people go hungry and this initiative helps prevent such waste and lower our carbon footprint. We are also linked with Fareshare through their CFine organisation which allows us to provide tinned or dried foods to those who are struggling to make ends meet.


Sutherland Care Forum (SCF) is a Registered Charity (Charity No. SC042741) established in 2011 to support and represent service users and unpaid carers with wide variety of needs.
