Community organisations have teamed up to help provide hot food to those in need every week.
The Stobswell Forum has joined with local charity Taught by Muhammad and Park Avenue Church Hall to offer free lunches on Fridays from noon-2pm, starting from January 18.
As well as providing food, workers from Taught by Muhammad will be on hand to provide advice, support and company for the vulnerable and needy.
Colin Clement, of Stobswell Forum, said that while it was “unfortunate” to have to introduce such a service, it would be warmly welcomed by the community.
He added: “We want to help people in our community who could benefit from a nutritious hot meal, some friendly chat and support where it’s needed.
“Taught by Muhammad operates similar operations in other parts of Dundee and unfortunately we believe that this is now needed in Stobswell.”
