Local Organisations Providing Access to Food

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to the UK lockdown, the information on this page is outdated as of 23 March 2020 – the organisations below may no longer be providing food, or their arrangements may have changed. If in doubt, please contact the organisations directly.

As mentioned in our post late last week, we have taken the hard decision to close Pilton Community Health Project to visitors to reduce risk to our community during the Coronavirus outbreak.

This means we will no longer be able to provide access to our Sharing Shelves. Other local organisations are also affected, but here is a list of some which are still providing access to food as of the time of writing:

Granton Goes Greener

Granton Goes Greener will continue to provide access to food and toiletries. These will of course be subject to availability and there may be a limit on how many items can be taken.
