Food Donation Project

Food Donation Project

In 2019, following on from discussions around the ever-increasing demand for foodbanks across Dumfries and Galloway, the youth steering group established the Food Donation Project which asked all ticket holders who were in a position to donate, to bring along an item of foodstuff for donation when they entered the event. The project was a success with over 48,200 individual items donated over the course of the weekend with the donations divided between 3 food providers.

For 2022, in light of the increasing cost of living, the youth steering group feel the need for this project to return is greater than ever. All ticketholders for 2022, are invited to bring along one food item that they can deposit in the Food Donation Drop Box at the entrance on the festival days if they are able to do so. Donation is not a condition of entry.

We have recently been working alongside Food Providing Organisations from across the region and are delighted to have 6 providers on board for this year’s event from every locality in Dumfries and Galloway. Volunteers from 3 providers will be on hand each day at the gate to collect and sort donations.
