We are currently cooking and distributing over 3000 nourishing meals each week- these are either going 'direct to door' for those in immediate need of food as well as being distributed by Scran Academy, Helping Hands, Heavy Sound, Multi-Cultural Family Base and Grassmarket Community Project. The things that we are cooking include soups, sausage and mash, vegetable tagine, chilli, spaghetti and meatballs, shepherd's pie and many more.
We now know that each portion of food costs us £1.50 to make so for just £25, YOU could feed a family of 4 for a week.
Edinburgh Food Festival will return...
Since its launch in 2014, the festival has hosting top industry figures such as Carina Contini, Shirley Spear, Tom Lewis, Guy Grieve and Neil Forbes. The event welcomed over 35,000 visitors in 2019.
The free Festival welcomes visitors of all ages to George Square Gardens, with stallholders offering everything from Alandas Gelato and Fish & Chips (East Lothian) to Jarvis Pickle pies (Berwickshire) and Chick & Pea street food (Edinburgh). Quenching thirsts throughout the five days are a selection popular drinks brands, including Fyne Ales from Argyll.
With quality Scottish food at the heart of it, the festival is a fantastic introduction for visitors to see just a soupçon of what Scotland’s larder has to offer.
George Square is Assembly Festival's main hub and the home of the Edinburgh Food Festival once again. Assembly George Square Gardens house our Spiegeltent Palais du Variété, the Piccolo Tent, The Treehouse and a selection of street food vendors and bars.
