Everyone deserves delicious & nutritious food

Edinburgh Food Social is a social enterprise working towards food justice by educating and empowering young people and communities to engage with local, seasonal food.

Inspired by our outstanding Scottish food culture, we promote the use of local, seasonal produce to increase access to and understanding of good food and its transformational impact on physical and mental health.

Our food projects work with communities and young people in Craigmillar and the surrounding areas to develop confidence in the kitchen and enhance people’s lives through learning about food.

Our work gives local people the skills and resources to provide for themselves and their families, and inspires young people to build rewarding careers in hospitality.

We  provide food education, interactive learning opportunities and community meals. Our community food projects are supported by wedding catering and event catering.

“St. Teresa's have worked in partnership with Edinburgh Food Social during the pandemic in December to deliver food packages to those in need within our local community. EFS is a great addition to our multi-agency network. They work extremely well with our young people and offer an informative insight to where the food is sourced and how it has been prepared. This information is then relayed to our service users via our youth volunteers. Moreover, those who have received food packages have given us excellent feedback. I look forward to the continuation of our collaborative journey.'”
