Homeless Project Scotland has issued an urgent appeal for donations as they plan an ’emergency’ soup kitchen tomorrow night.
The decision comes following news that a number of food banks across the country would be closed due to the public holiday marking the Queen’s funeral.
In a statement, a spokesperson for Homeless Project Scotland said: “In response to the closure of frontline services and businesses for the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.
“Homeless Project Scotland has taken the decision to open an emergency soup kitchen which will serve hot food and other supplies.
“We appreciate that tomorrow is an emotional day for our country, however, we must also recognize that tomorrow will bring challenges for those who are vulnerable and homeless to be able to procure and access hot and nutritious food.
“We must stick to our principles in this difficult time and ensure that no one goes to bed hungry.”
The charity will hold the service at its usual location under ‘Hielanman’s Umbrella’ on Argyle Street at 8.00pm.
Raja Rani in Bearsden and Tantrum Donuts have already pledged to donate with all other volunteers invited to contact Homeless Project Scotland via their Facebook page.
The charity stressed that the emergency service will not affect its usual soup kitchen operations on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.
