Edinburgh Food Project is an accredited Living Wage Employer. This means that every member of staff working for Edinburgh Food Project will earn a real Living Wage.

The real Living Wage is higher than the government’s minimum, or National Living Wage, and is an independently calculated hourly rate of pay that is based on the actual cost of living. It is calculated each year and is announced by the Living Wage Foundation as part of Living Wage Week.

Volunteers

Investing in Volunteers is the UK standard for good practice in volunteer management. Edinburgh Food Project is, and always has been powered by volunteers and we wanted to achieve the standard to show our commitment to and appreciation of our volunteers.  We also wanted to take the opportunity to reflect on our processes and learn from other organisations.

In October 2021, after completing and reviewing our self assessment, providing supporting documents and going through hours of interviews we achieved the Investing in Volunteers award.
