Edinburgh Food Social aims to make local food more accessible in Scotland, working with schools and communities to develop cooking skills.  We realise that not everyone has access to good local food or the means to cook with it so our social enterprise will be taking a food truck out into the heart of communities and teaching people to cook with seasonal ingredients.  Everyone in Scotland deserves to have access to the great produce we have on our doorstep.

The social enterprise was started by Eleanor Cunningham who runs the Edinburgh Larder after recognising that there is a critical skills gap in Scotland when cooking from scratch and a shortage of home economics teachers in schools.  There are very few cooking classses available at a reasonable price range which use local and seasonal ingredients.  There are also too many people who don't have access to good food and a growing need for positive things to happen in our food system.

We would like to offer people the skills to utilise the best seasonal ingredients all year round and how to do this on a budget.  We will work with a number of schools throughout Edinburgh and beyod to inpire children to cook with local ingredients and become involved in planning the menus in their schools.  We've already delivered cooking skills training with several primary schools in Edinburgh and we've been amazed by the outcomes. We'll also link up with a number of communinty groups offering skills training to young people who have struggled to get into work and offer healthy takeaway meals as part of an anti-poverty campaign.

We are a social enterprise so any profits made will go back to the schools or into community projects we work with.  All the money raised from our crowd funding will go to buying a food truck so we can reach the heart of communities who really need our help.  Anything you can give will make a huge difference in communities throughout Edinburgh and beyond.
