An Inverness food project is seeking volunteers and ambassadors for a new community fridge.

The GoodNESS Project, based in Culloden, aims to reduce food waste and provide support for those who need it.

It has opened the community fridge in a shed at the Barn Centre, in Barn Church Road.

The church-run project will redistribute surplus food produce from retailers and donated items from individuals.

It is looking for volunteers in Smithton, Balloch, Culloden, and Cradlehall to get involved whether it is someone who can spare an evening a week to make connections with local shops, or people wanting to get to know their community better.

Co-ordinator Rebecca Wilson said: "If you find yourself wishing you could do more for the environment, or thinking of ways you could help or support people across the community, this is a perfect solution."

The project has received funding from Scotmid to help get it up and running.
