Users of a free food scheme at Brora have been warned not to be “greedy grabbers!”
Managers of the scheme at Brora Village Hub took to social media after some people were spotted leaving the food larder with bulging bags containing more than their fair share.
The hub’s Facebook post reads: “Please do not abuse our wee free food shed which is run by a very small army of volunteers.
“Take a little often and not everything at once.
“A very small number of folk have been leaving the shed laden with full bin bags of food, meaning noone else can get a single thing.
“Please don’t be a greed grabber!”
Unlike Trussell Trust Food Banks, where users need a referral from a care professional, free food schemes are generally open to all.
Managers of such schemes form partnerships with local supermarkets, collecting food which is nearing its usage date and which would otherwise be put into landfill.
