#TheBigLunch Volunteer Day!

We were delighted to be able to host the ‘Big Lunch’ today at Operation Strawberry in Tennant Street. This was an event to welcome people from our local area and to celebrate the contribution that our fantastic volunteers make at Edinburgh Community Food. Locals and volunteers were welcomed in, and it was the staff’s turn to make sure the teacups were all topped up!

We also welcomed Zamin from supplier Mark Murphy’s. His stall showcased locally grown fruits and vegetables, especially the wonderful Strawberries from Blacketyside Farm! 🍓🍓🍓

Our driver, Paul, put his chef hat on and kept everyone fed with meals from our delicious Take & Make range. Finished off with, of course, Blacketyside strawberries and ice-cream.

Volunteer of the Year! 🏆⭐

We were also delighted to be able to present our ‘Volunteer of the Year’ award to Gordon Paterson. Gordon has volunteered weekly with ECF in the warehouse for the last year and is a valuable member of the team. Well done!

Our raffle prizes were won by wonderful volunteers Rosanna and Louise and local business owner Noel. 

A huge thank you to everyone who came along to help us celebrate the Big Lunch and Volunteer Day!
