Inverness Foodstuff is more than just a meal:

Our vision is to be a vibrant community, providing food, friendship and support to all who face significant challenges – including financial hardship and homelessness.

Our mission is to: support the homeless and tackle social isolation, challenge food poverty and combat food waste, reduce harm and enable people to improve their health and well-being.

Inverness Foodstuff was set up as a response to the unmet needs of those experiencing daily challenges, often linked to homelessness. We are a vibrant and connected community that helps people transform their physical mental, and social well being. Our services are centred at our welcoming café (based in the spacious Ness Bank Church kitchen) which, on three days a week, offers a freshly cooked vegetarian meal and companionship to our participants and acts as a hub where they can access a range of services.

The hub supports participants in developing new skills and increasing confidence – and we can guide individuals to other services and opportunities. Representatives from health, employability, and other agencies come along to help participants link into mainstream services.  With the right support – and great nutrition and company – we believe that those who experience challenge feel more confident and valued – and can make positive, sustainable changes to their lives.

Welcome from Reverend Fiona Smith – Inverness Foodstuff chair

It has been my joy and my privilege to have been involved with Inverness Foodstuff from its beginnings in 2014. Since then Inverness Foodstuff has grown into a community in which all people are welcomed and accepted, where food and friendship is shared and enjoyed, where people are respected and listened to and where they can connect with the services they need through the partnerships that Inverness Foodstuff have established.

Please take a few minutes to browse through our website to learn more about what we do at Inverness Foodstuff and why we do it – maybe you will find that you too could become part of this hope filled, transformational community!
