Best Start Foods Box

This box is for recipients of Best Start Foods only. To find out if you are eligible to apply for Best Start Grant and Best Start Food, please see here.

If you are eligible for Best Start you will receive £17 every four weeks during pregnancy. This increases to £34.00 up until your child turns ones. It will then return to £17.00 every four weeks when your child is between one and three years old. 

Use your Best Start Foods card with us at Edinburgh Community Food. We can make up a box filled with your choice of fresh eggs, fresh milk, fruits and vegetables and a Take and Make bag - all added up to £17 the monthly allowance. In addition to this we will add in some extra dry cupboard ingredients. All delivered to your door!

If you would like to spend less than £17 we can also provide a weekly (£4.25) or fortnightly (£8.50) box. This will be for collection only from our Warehouse, 22 Tennant Street, Leith, Edinburgh, EH6 5ND. 

To get next day delivery please order before 11am. Please leave a contact phone number in case we need to get in touch!

If you would like to decide what goes into your box please leave this in the delivery note or call us on 0131 467 7326.
