In Edinburgh you can get a foodbank referral by ringing the Scottish Welfare Fund on 0131 529 5299 and choosing option 5. You don’t need to get an organisation to ring for you, you can do it yourself. But if you have any problems contact ECAP.
Most Tuesdays there is a delivery of breaded produce to ECAP from Food Sharing Edinburgh, around the start time of the ECAP drop-in. Just call by, first come first served, and sorry we can’t guarantee the amount of food or indeed the delivery. However there is usually a small quantity of other food and toiletries available too. Plus of course we can ring to get you a foodbank referral, as mentioned above.
