Edinburgh Food Social
Since 2015, we have shared our passion for local, sustainable and seasonal food through hands-on cookery classes, workshops, school projects and community meals, affecting well over 1000 people living in the top 10% of Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation.
We believe that everyone in Scotland deserves to have access to the great produce we have on our doorstep and the means to cook with it if they want to.
Our goals are to:
- Enhance lives and improve health through learning about food.
- Build confidence by giving people the skills and resources to provide for themselves and their families.
- Provide safe places for community meals and food events.
- Nourish people by providing easier access to sources of good food.
- Inspire young people and offer a supported and respected career path into the hospitality industry.
- Create a food culture that supports the people who live in Scotland.
