Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have contributed to an online version of the Discover! programme which first ran over the summer period, with great success.  

This Christmas, Edinburgh Community Food will supply 325 families with 2 nutritious hampers full of fresh fruit and vegetables, plant-based dried pulses, grains and cereals and tinned goods, recipes and more. Families will receive the first hamper on 21st December celebrating 'Green Globe' and 5th January 'Blue Planet.

In addition to the online activities provided by the City of Edinburgh Council and partners, Edinburgh Community food have pre-recorded content to accompany the recipes and activities in the food hampers.  You can watch these here:
