Food poverty


Submitted by Editor on

Broughton may look and feel like a relatively affluent area. But behind the scenes, a surprising number of people here struggle to make ends meet and put food on the table.

The Edinburgh Food Project is an independent charity established in 2012 (SCO43220). Its 170 volunteers currently hand out 2,000 food parcels per month through seven outlets across the capital. One parcel in three goes to a child.
