Evening Express: North-east community larder feeding 300 households every month

Volunteers at a north-east community larder have helped to feed around 300 households every month since the Covid-19 pandemic began.

The Haven, based in Stonehaven’s Market Square, opened as a not-for-profit well being centre in January 2018.

But when the coronavirus pandemic hit, founder Julia Morton transformed the yoga studio into a community larder to help those most vulnerable in the area.

The service gives members of the public access to food and toiletries with no questions asked.

Its shelves are stocked with non-perishable items as well as fresh food nearing its sell-by-date donated by local shops to prevent it from going to waste.
