Highland Foodbank has been given a boost from the Rotary Club of Inverness Loch Ness.
The club has donated £1,000 to the Blythswood Care run resource after members opted to stash away the cost of their lunch for the past 12 weeks whilst attending virtual meetups.
Part of the funding has also come from a grant from the Rotary Foundation Emergency Fund.
Blythswood chief executive James Campbell said: “This is a very generous donation, and very helpful during the current coronavirus pandemic when we have doubled the amount of food distributed compared to the same period a year ago.
“We’re coming across many more families around the Highlands who have needed our services after finding that 80% furlough wages don’t stretch enough to put meals on the table.”
Ormand Smith, from the rotary club, said: “It is a privilege for the club to be able to help in a meaningful way, particularly when people are suffering securing food during the current pandemic.
“We were fortunate that the rotary district was giving out a grant for clubs for projects like this so we applied and topped it up ourselves.
“The whole concept of the rotary is to be able to assist wherever we can and we are delighted to be able to help the food bank out.”
