christmas appeal 2021

2021 has proved to be another difficult year for families finding themselves in food poverty, through no fault of their own.  COVID19 continued to impact on people in poverty most of all. In October, the £20 uplift to Universal Credit was removed and the financial support to people furloughed ended. Energy prices have also increased significantly. It will be a hard Christmas for many this year.

Please consider supporting Edinburgh Food Project this Christmas.

Who we are

Our mission is to help people by understanding their needs.

We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
