What are we doing?
As lockdown, inequality and poverty bite, many people in Edinburgh aren’t in a position to provide healthy, nutritious food for their families this year. Edinburgh Food Social provide just that.
Not only is this food a real lifeline for those who need it, but our kitchen team is made up of young people from complex backgrounds that gain valuable skills and understanding from this work.
With a donation of £10 you can cover the cost of five delicious meals to be cooked by our team and distributed to those who need them most.
Why are we doing this?
Edinburgh Food Social ended up cooking over 85,000 meals for those in need in 2020. This was an incredible journey and we were honoured to have worked with such incredible partner organisations and to be able to have supported people in a time that many felt helpless.
With 2021 looking equally challenging, we are proud to continue this food offering to those who need a hand during these exceptionally challenging times.
We are committed to supporting local growers and suppliers as well as providing work for displaced chefs and helping our local communities during this time.
We have now offered our support to a number of fantastic Edinburgh organisations including Empty Kitchens Full Hearts, Fresh Start and The Venchie to provide ready to heat meals for individuals and families alike for free and with no judgement.
We need your help too!
With a donation of £10 you would cover the cost of five nutritious meals for somebody suffering from poverty, inequality and/or isolation.
We thank you in advance for your contribution to ensuring that those in our community have access to the nourishing, locally produced, tasty food that they deserve.
