A Dundee charity needs to find over 10,000 in funds or face having to fold.
Members of Food on Friday are becoming increasingly concerned after the secure funding they were expecting to receive three weeks ago failed to come through.
Project manager of the charity, Anthea Reid, said: “We started to get worried about our financial situation when funding scheduled to come in just simply didn’t.
“This community project has been going for eight years and this is the first time we have been left in a very dangerous position where we are on the verge of collapsing.
“We were relying on the funding to see us through until January, but right now we are far from being in a good position.”
The project, in Douglas and Mid Craigie Church, aims to teach school pupils, and members of the community, how to lead a good quality of life through activities including cooking, gardening and exercise.
Anthea is now working tirelessly to source funding from those who want to help get the charity out of its troubles.
She said: “We are still in need of a lot of money, but I can say the help we have received so far has been absolutely amazing.
“I have had a lot of support from those in the community who have offered to do whatever they can and I’ve also managed to secure a bit of funding from another charity who were very kind to give us a helping hand.
“The church has also been a huge help in supporting us through this tough time.”
Anthea said the reason for the sudden funding drought could be due to the “highly competitive” environment her charity operates in.
“There are many charities like ours who are also in need of a lot of financial support,” she said.
“It’s up to the organisations, companies or individuals to choose who they fund so the more charities there are, the more competition we have when asking for funding.”
Food on Friday runs workshops, classes, tasting sessions, excursions for schools and members of the community.
It also runs support groups on healthy cooking, exercise, wellbeing and growing your own vegetables.
Donations and cheques can be sent to Douglas and Mid Craigie Church.
