The kids’ club at Old Kilpatrick Food Parcels (OKFP) has been hard at work whipping up an appetite for the community.

Children attending the club last week were taught how to make Rice Krispie cakes which were then later enjoyed by senior members in the community.

During the lesson, the youngsters learned the importance of melting chocolate, scooping mixtures into cases and the most important part -taste testing.

Maureen Cummings, founder of OKFP, told the Post: “Our volunteers are enjoying spending time with the children.

“During the baking classes the girls learn to prepare tables for dining and how to serve food which is always good fun.

“On Tuesdays, three of our under 10s come in after school to volunteer for us, preparing the kids’ snack packs for our food bank.

“All of our activities are free for the kids and we couldn’t do them without your continuous support.”

Their free after school club runs on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3.30-4.30pm for arts and crafts with no booking required.

And baking classes run on Fridays from 3.30-4.30pm, but booking for this is required as spaces are limited.

Residents in Clydebank can donate cake mixes or baking items to the charity any day from Monday to Friday from 12-4pm or can contribute online via the OKFP PayPal account by emailing oldkilpatrick
