Local Food Hub Values Local Views

Lesley Atkins and Tamsin Geddes from the Glenkens Food Hub are keen to know what the public think about the Food Hub and its local impact.   

‘The Food Hub provides a fantastic local service which is growing steadily,’ said Lesley.  ‘We’re currently exploring growth options and we’ve commissioned an independent agency to find out more about demand from local and wider communities. We want to hear from as many people as possible and that’s why we’re launching this online survey to find out more about what people want from us.  We want to hear from you.’


The Glenkens Food Hub is a social enterprise based in St John’s Town of Dalry. Launched in 2022, the Food Hub offers a selection of local, sustainable and organic produce from small suppliers.  Supported by The Glenkens District Trust, through the Blackcraig Wind Farm Community Fund, it’s aim is to give easier access to climate and nature friendly local food to the community.


‘We’re looking for as many local people as possible to take part in the survey and are encouraging those who participate to pass on the survey link to friends, family and colleagues. It’s an online survey so it’s easy to pass on,’ added Lesley.


And, as a delicious ‘Thank You’ to those who complete the survey, participants can enter a free Prize Draw to win a hamper of sustainably grown and made produce supplied by local producers, valued at over twenty pounds.


‘To encourage responses, we’ve worked with our producers to showcase local produce in the prize draw hampers’ said Tamsin. ‘We’ve Glenkens honey, the Ethical Dairy cheeses, locally grown microgreens and some awesome baking from The Earth’s Crust Bakery in each and every hamper.’


One hamper winner will be drawn from every 30 respondents.


‘It only takes a few minutes to complete the survey and the information provided will really help us with our future development plans’ added Lesley.
