Edinburgh City Mission runs a Soul Food meal in partnership with Soul Food Edinburgh and The City of Edinburgh Methodist Church.
We believe in the power of a meal to restore dignity to an individual, and at Soul Food we are committed to providing meals which make people feel loved, valued and at home.
Hospitality is at the centre of Soul Food, yet it is always more than a meal. The vision is centred around the power of a table. Holding to the fact that hospitality is something which is core to the very heart of Christianity, we hope that the ordinary setting of a dinner table becomes a space of life-changing relationship and community.
By setting a table and sharing a meal, Soul Food offers a place of safety and security where people feel accepted, respected, valued, loved and heard.
This context of equality is the perfect space for those genuine relationships to grow, and for the community to walk alongside each other to help and support those experiencing homelessness and isolation, and to break free of the cycle of poverty.
