About Us

We are a Musselburgh base organisation that seeks to make the best of food products by recycling products. That is we collect food donated to us and run cooking classes using some of them then share the finish delicacies with various service users here and in parts of Edinburgh.

MISSION STATEMENT, VALUES & PRINCIPLES

 To recycle fresh food that retailers and donors cannot sell through cooking classes into meals on wheels, soup kitchen meals, ans as food bank parcels. We seek to reach services users in East Lothian and parts of Edinburgh through referrals.

“No one in Scotland, in the 21st century, should suffer from extreme poverty due to age, illness or any such  circumstances. We are here to help anyone in need, who has fallen on hard times or through holes in social security net”  (Thought for 2017)
