Our Mission

Our aim is to get people into healthy food and healthy food into people.

Edinburgh Community Food is all about helping people enjoy delicious, fresh, healthy food and making sure everyone in our city has access to an affordable, healthy diet.

We tackle health inequalities in low-income communities in Edinburgh through our Food and Health Development and Promotion work, including cooking and nutrition courses, health information presentations and delivery of Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland accredited courses. 

We believe in:

Healthier food – Healthier lives – Healthier futures

As a leader in Edinburgh’s community food and health sector we are working to promote health equality by helping to provide healthy food, offering food education and supporting community health initiatives.

Edinburgh Community Food is a social enterprise and a charity. Our social enterprise work is all about sourcing and selling the best quality fruit and vegetables. We run stalls in Edinburgh’s hospitals selling our great produce to staff, patients and visitors.  We also deliver fresh fruit and vegetables to homes and businesses across the city. All our profits go back into our charitable work*.

*Our exciting range of programmes are currently funded by City of Edinburgh Council, NHS Lothian, Scottish Government and by income generated from our social enterprise activities.
