There’s a lot to make us Yikes in this world. From the climate crisis to racism to activism and resisting oppressive systems, it can call get a bit overwhelming. Yikes is a podcast which leans into the Yikes of the world rather than letting it overwhelm us. We breakdown the issues in an accessible intersectional and nuanced way to guide us towards action together.

Transition Stirling, in partnership with the Kitchen at 44, established Stirling Community Food in March 2020.
Now based at 5 Wellgreen Lane in Stirling town centre, Stirling Community Food helps reduce food waste. Instead of large supermarkets putting large volumes of excess and near-sell-by-date food in the bin, the project collects the excess food and offers it to everyone in the community for free. Customers can collect many fresh bakery goods, frozen foods and flowers as well as a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables.
