Glasgow Central Mosque has delivered thousands of food packs and hot meals to those in need across the city. 

Through a collection service and delivery service, a total of 2000 food packs and 14,000 hot meals have been distributed to vulnerable groups in Glasgow. 

Those to have received the goods are: elderly and vulnerable individual households, hotels housing asylum seekers, student accommodations, women's shelters, homeless shelters, Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow Royal Infirmary, Wishaw General Hospital and various GP surgeries.

Local Labour councillor, Soryia Siddique said: “It is heart-warming seeing all faiths and none, communities from all backgrounds, third sector organisations and volunteers organise during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure the vulnerable and elderly are provided with the support they need.

"Glasgow Central Mosque has been key to ensuring thousands of families are supported against food poverty during this difficult time.

"Thank you to the Mosque and volunteers for providing a remarkable service for Glasgow communities".
