Since 2012, Ayrshire (East) Foodbank has provided individuals in crisis with emergency food supplies. Alone in the previous year, the foodbank provided 6,548 three-day emergency food supplies to individuals and families in need.

The foodbank has nine locations in East Ayrshire where schools, churches, businesses, and individuals can donate nonperishable, in-date food items. The donations are then processed by volunteers to ensure they are still within their expiration dates and packaged into cartons to be distributed to those in need. The foodbank is also funded by the Trussell Trust, a UK-wide organization whose mission is to eradicate starvation and destitution.

Doctors, health visitors, social workers, and police officers identify individuals and families in need of emergency food assistance.

These vouchers may be exchanged at any foodbank center for three-day emergency food supplies.
