Christmas Appeal

appealHelp ENSA and Foodbank to feed local people in crisis this Christmas.

Edinburgh Central Foodbank provides emergency food and support to local people in crisis. Every day there are families who are struggling to put food on the table and who are forced to choose between paying the rent, heating their homes, and eating. With your help, we can support these people and ensure they don't go hungry this Christmas.

Edinburgh Central Foodbank is part of The Trussell Trust's UK-wide foodbank network. This helps local churches and communities to open foodanks, providing emergency food to thousands of people nationwide every year.

You can help by donating any of the following non-perishable food items to our Foodbank Christmas Appeal donation bins in the campus foyers and the reception area at Bainfield.
