Community grants for food projects in Edinburgh

The Live Well Edinburgh Fund (formerly the Joseph Thomson Mortification Trust) is encouraging groups and services in Edinburgh that provide food, food education activities and services to vulnerable and disadvantaged communities to apply for grants to support their work.

Joseph Thomson set up the fund in 1774 to give ‘poor households’ in Edinburgh access to food, mainly oats and oatmeal.

The Scottish Community Foundation is the new fund holder and is committed to making awards close to the original aims of the trust. Grants between £250 and £5000 can be applied for and will be administered through SCF’s Community Grant Programme.
