New foodbank centres

11th November 2016

Edinburgh Food Project is pleased announce the opening of our first foodbank centre in Craigmillar, part of our new Edinburgh East foodbank. We have also recently extended the coverage of our Edinburgh Central foodbank service into the Oxgangs area with an additional centre.

Both foodbank centres, part of the Trussell Trust network, will help adults and children with three days emergency food provision, toiletries and household items in some of the most deprived households in Scotland (as per SIMD 2016 data).

We are proud to be working with over 160 frontline care agency partners in Edinburgh who refer clients to us and are providing the necessary support and solutions to different crisis situations that cause individuals to use foodbanks.
