The Carrick Centre has made the transition to providing takeaway food in order to continue serving during the Coronavirus pandemic.

The centre, which also operates as a foodbank, will be providing ready-made meals for customers to purchase from their building on Culzean Road in Maybole.

Centre manager Andrea Hutchison said: “We want to ensure we maintain a service for the community along with the foodbank provision for as long as possible.

“We want to help our community and loyal customers so we are preparing a take away (hot or cold) menu for those who haven’t managed to do their shop, get what they need, or are having to stay at home.

“Friends and relatives can pick these meals up and they are perfect for the freezer. As the hub of the community we will continue to support individuals within North Carrick, in whichever way necessary.

“We wish all of our customers well as we move through the unfolding world events.”

The menu includes homemade soup for £1, beef and vegetable casserole for £3, macaroni cheese for £2.50, vegetable curry and rice for £3 and scones or home baking from 50p.
