Our Work

The Storehouse

Food storage solution for our Foodbank+ network and Soul Food meals. Located at Len’s Self Storage in Sighthill.

Dashed Line (Pink Alt)
The Storehouse is Edinburgh City Mission’s new food storage and distribution centre, generously supported by Len’s Self Storage at Sighthill.

Opened in response to Covid-19, it has now become a regular feature of our support for the Foodbank+ network, topping up their vital supplies through responding to the orders from the Foodbanks+ based on their weekly needs.

Volunteer drivers distribute the supplies from The Storehouse to the Foodbanks+.

Staffed by volunteers for an hour each Monday-Thursday, The Storehouse also allows opportunity for people to drop off donated food for distribution.

While most of the food we distribute through our Foodbanks+ is donated, since lockdown began, we have been spending an additional £800-£1,000 a week to supplement donations with essential food items and sundries, such as hand sanitiser, nappies and baby food, as well as buying food for the Soul Food meals we partner in.

The support provided by The Storehouse means that our Foodbanks+ don’t have to worry about any gaps in donations, and allows them to continue focussing on providing vital practical help and building relationships with the individuals and families who are referred to the network.
