222kg of Food Donated to Food Banks in Edinburgh

222kg of Food Donated

Every year, Edinburgh’s Christmas works very closely with The Trussell Trust food banks around the city, encouraging residents to donate non-perishables, toiletries and unwanted Christmas gifts to a food bank donation point located at the Christmas Market in Princes Street Gardens.

In 2018 Underbelly donated 222.3kg of food and non-perishable items to the Edinburgh Food Project which went to the Edinburgh North West, Central and East food banks. In addition to this Edinburgh’s Christmas raised just under £1,000 in financial donations for the food banks and gave 12,000 free tickets to their users.
