Our intention is for The Green House to open as a Food Pantry three days/week, and be used as a community food space outside of these times, providing a location for workshops, classes etc which would be delivered by our Community Food Officer. Our goal is for the Pantry to have a regular membership of approximately 200 within six months of the start of the post, such that it becomes a self-financing social enterprise.
The Green House is a shop unit leased by the Community Alliance Trust (CAT). It has a good central location on Niddrie Mains Road. We intend for the Green House to play a large role in the Community Alliance Trust’s community food hub project developed in response to food insecurity/poverty in the Craigmillar area.
The Community Alliance Trust
Community Alliance Trust (CAT) is a development trust, and is a non-profit distributing organisation set up by the Community Regeneration Forum in 2011 to develop community assets and new social enterprise initiatives in the Craigmillar area and improve the quality of life of Craigmillar residents.
We are currently running a community food hub project which seeks to support households in food insecurity. The project has several strands including local food growing, community food work and the pantry.
