Our students and staff have been supporting our local community + building a student food larder

As a  College we have been collecting for EK's Loaves & Fishes Foodbank , and this year we have also introduced a student larder, where we have been creating an area where students can access free non-perishable food, household and toiletry items to help with the cost of living crisis throughout the winter.
The larder will be open to students to collect items from the South Lanarkshire College Student Association office until 20 December
Head of Student Services, Rose Harkness said 

"At South Lanarkshire College we have a real sense of community, and we know how important it is to support each other. We understand the needs of our learners and can take prompt action to help when needed.”

"The College main aim was to ensure no student went to class hungry, We have introduced free breakfasts and a soup and sandwich lunch for students on campus during Covid, and we have recently brought that back, which has been really successful. Hundreds of students have benefitted. Now with the student larder, we are ensuring that students do not go hungry during the holidays either"

"I want to thank everyone who has donated, and hope 2023 brings brighter days for all. Seasons greetings from everyone at South Lanarkshire College"
