Since forming in 2020 Edinburgh Food Social has provided over 130,000 ready-to-heat meals to individuals in communities across Edinburgh. Our £1000 Cairn Community Fund grant will provide between 500 and 700 meals for people in need. As well as providing people with homemade ready meals to take away, they also provide recipe bags with detailed instructions and hot meals from their food truck. This ensures that even those without the means to reheat food are still receiving the vital food they need to survive. The meals are prepared by young, displaced chefs and made with local, seasonal ingredients. Edinburgh Food Social has a fantastic network with other local community groups, and are planning to launch communal community meals where they can bring people to together to cook together and learn new recipes.
