We have launched an online Christmas bakery shop to support our mission to create real solutions to poverty in Scotland.
Currently, in West Lothian, 23% of people are living below the poverty line. Our aim is to provide learning and community development opportunities that act as the catalyst for individual and social change. We offer hope for many local people through training on employability, life skills, health and cooking as well as creating access to quality food in a dignified way.
Sadly, for many people across Scotland, Christmas is not a time of joy but a time of worry and desperation. However, by purchasing a sweet or savoury treat from The Larder shop, you can help local people in need, as 100% of profits will go to supporting the most disadvantaged people across West Lothian. The Larder chefs have created a range of handmade, freshly baked cakes and pastries to sweeten your day, as well as homemade savoury snacks for the perfect picnic lunch or evening nibbles with your tipple of choice! All of the bakery items are made locally in West Lothian, using quality ingredients and placed in eco-friendly, bio-degradable packaging, ready for collection.
For something extra-special, you can surprise a loved one with the Festive Afternoon Tea Box or treat the family to a delicious Yule Log, complete with meringue mushrooms, on Christmas day. In conjunction with The Larder’s Christmas Meal Appeal, you can also purchase a voucher to gift a meal when you place your bakery order, from as little as £5 for one person or £20 for a family.
CEO of The Larder, Angela Moohan said: “On behalf of all our team at The Larder, I’d like to thank everyone who has supported us over the years, especially throughout the pandemic. As a result of your donations, we were able to continue to support 199 young people to continue their engagement with learning and also provide 116,000 meals to those experiencing food insecurity. Now in the season known for generosity and giving, we ask for your support again to help us to ensure that Christmas is an enjoyable day for all.”
You can finally feel good about buying sweet treats this festive period as your support will help some of the most vulnerable in our society. Visit The Larder shop now to place your order and help to change lives for the better.
