Dockyard Social will feed 500 Glaswegians in need tonight

Dockyard Social will open tonight. The street food traders will be welcoming anyone who is in need, including rough sleepers and families who rely on foodbanks, from 5pm until 9pm. Around 500 portions of food will be available, provided by six of the regular traders at the market on Haugh Road.

Organisers said: “We can’t thank Braehead foods and Fresh Direct enough for their huge contributions and help. We want to make a lasting difference for people in need across Glasgow. We aim to open up monthly to begin with, to continue food giveaways.

“Going forward we’re planning to host basic cooking classes to help teach the fundamentals of cooking nutritious meals using survival food packs.”

The Dockyard Social will return with a Mother’s Day Special on 11th March.
