We turn surplus food into healthy meals for those who need them. Since April 2020, we've provided over a million meals free of charge.We take food donations and convert them into breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks. Community volunteers then package these meals into 'day packs' for delivery across Edinburgh. Each and every meal is provided free of charge.

Having been set up in response to the pandemic, we are now looking to strenghten our governance with a view to setting our future strategy.

You will be expected to dedicate one or two days per month to EKFH (spread across the month). The Executive Committee meets monthly. The Board meets four to six times a year. You may be required to attend ad hoc Executive Committee Meetings and Board Meetings should the need arise.

Closing date: 30 November 2021
