Edinburgh Food Project was established in 2012 with the aim of reducing the effects of food poverty in Edinburgh by providing emergency food parcels to those in the community most in need. Over the last three years, we have been transitioning our 8 foodbank centres into “More than Food” hubs to allow our clients to access dedicated support to help them with their immediate and underlying problems to reduce/eliminate their need for food bank assistance and build their financial resilience for the future.
Edinburgh Food Project is overseen by the Board of Trustees, who have overall responsibility and accountability for everything the charity does. The Board consist of 12 individual volunteers (unpaid) who bring an array of skills and experience to help set the charities strategic direction and ensure good governance. Trustees have an opportunity to significantly contribute towards Edinburgh Food Project’s mission:
”To provide emergency food supplies and support to people in crisis, while working with people, communities, and our partner agencies to address the underlying causes of food poverty.”
Board meetings are held every 6 weeks on Monday evenings, at 5pm (6pm if in person), currently via Zoom. Between Board meetings you may be required to spend additional time on subjects such as setting strategic direction, dealing with staff matters, improving governance or making decisions on infrastructure.
