TRJFP intercepts food that would otherwise not make it to plate and serves it as delicious meals. Alongside the positive environmental impacts of reducing edible food waste, the project has clear social benefits through operating a strictly Pay-as-you-feel (PAYF) policy. Transcending monetary transactions, this liberates people to use their skills and attributes as well as money to pay for their meals, & highlights the absurdity that the produce used has been stripped of its monetary value but retains its nutritional value. TRJFP encourages a reflection on how we value food as a resource.

Food Sharing Edinburgh is an exciting new volunteer-led food waste reduction project based in the Shrub Co-op. We are part of a global movement of communities uniting to end food waste. We collect food that would otherwise be binned, and distribute it to those who can use it! Food Sharing aims to bring people together to eat well, end waste and create a more sustainable food system.
We are the world’s future leaders, entrepreneurs, farmers and consumers. The Slow Food Youth Network (SFYN) was founded to make youth familiar with Slow Food’s philosophy that says that all food should be Good, Clean and Fair.
By learning more about our local food systems in a fun and social way, we hope to bring people together to help create change within the global food system.
Nourish Scotland is reconnecting producers, growers, retailers, consumers and all who care for local, sustainable food in Scotland.

We investigate, expose and confront environmental abuse by governments and corporations around the world. We champion environmentally responsible and socially just solutions, including scientific and technical innovation through public engagement, street campaigning, political lobbying, actions, activities with kids, background research for campaigns, fundraising… and socialising 🙂

We encourage the public to adopt positive environmental behaviours, and collaborate with other green groups for greater impact
