Soul Food meal - a community meal that especially welcomes people that are marginalised in society such as those who are experiencing homelessness, addictions, mental health, loneliness or poverty.

Guests are rough sleepers, sofa surfers, people who live in B&B's, Hostels and people who are just about managing. We have guests from all over the world as well as born and bred Edinburgh people. We have guests who are addicts or recovering, guests who feel isolated, guests who are living with all the issues that poor mental health brings, we have guests who are trying to engage with society once again and guests who are trying to leave society behind.
It’s an interesting room - endless cups of coffee and tea along with great food have enabled friendships to be formed, significant conversations, and a community established.
