Scran Meals - Next Phase

Over the past four months, the Scran Meals Coalition have produced, packaged and delivered over 80,000 free, healthy meals to over 1,650 people across Edinburgh. This will continue for the weeks and months to come. However as lockdown measures ease and the situation must change, so must we! Our promise is to be there for people for the long terms, and we remain committed to providing that help to the young people, families and communities who need us most.

If you are one of the thousands of people receiving support from Scran already, dont worry, we will continue to support you until at least the end of July with the current meals programme. One of our team will be in touch soon to discuss how we keep doing that. If you are one of our partner organisations or a referral agency, do get in touch with us directly and we can discuss how we can work together.
