Clydesdale Food Bank was established in March 2013 by the Church of Scotland in Carluke to serve all of Clydesdale.

We are supported by churches of all denominations from all over that area as well as schools, clubs and organisations of all types and private individuals.

The Food Bank is run by volunteers who give many hours to collecting, sorting, packing and delivering food, as well as taking part in various fund raising activities.

As well as the main hub in Carluke, there are satellite distribution sites in Lanark, Biggar, Douglas and Kirkmuirhill, each with their own co-ordinator and team of drivers and deliverers.

We help anybody who needs our support; young, old, single people and families from all backgrounds, religious beliefs and ethnic origins, without prejudice. We aim to treat everyone fairly and with dignity. There is no charge for the food.


We cover a wide area throughout all of Clydesdale, an area of about 500 square miles with a total population of around 50,000.

We also have collection and donation points throughout the area including local supermarkets and churches. You find a complete list of our collection and donation points in the 'Give Help' section of the website.
