The team behind Edinburgh Larder have set up a social enterprise which aims to make local food more accessible by working with schools and communities to develop cooking skills. Thanks so much to everyone who helped us reach our £10k target on Kickstarter to buy a food truck – watch this space for more information on our plans and please request to join our Facebook page!

Our mission at Edinburgh Food Social is to enhance and extend life through food, building confidence and enriching communities.
Our goals are to:
The team behind the Edinburgh Food Social want to bring the benefits of using local food into schools and communities across Edinburgh by taking a food truck around the city and beyond to showcase what can be done with local food, all year round. They believe that everyone in Scotland deserves to have access to the great produce we have on our doorstep and the means to cook with it if they want to.
We hope to inspire children to cook with local produce and become involved in planning the menus in their schools. The team hope to help people of all ages and backgrounds develop their cooking skills and create nutritionally balanced meals using local, seasonal food.
Eleanor Cunningham, owner of the Larder and founder of Edinburgh Food Social says using local produce “means there’s a real connection between the supplier and the food we serve. The producers in Scotland work incredibly hard to develop really fantastic ingredients which are at the core of everything we cook – we’d like more people to have the opportunity to use these ingredients.”
