Community meals (Leith Police Box)

Availability : Edinburgh Wide

Who is this for?

It’s open to all – no questions asked.


Community meals at Leith Walk Police Box.  A regular (about once a month) drop in for healthy food and a chat.

We provide a simple hot meal and drinks with a place to sit and chat with others and staff/volunteers.  Or just enjoy your own space!

We want to foster community spirit, combat isolation and loneliness.

If you want to take your food away, please bring a clean container so that we can reduce our single use packaging waste.

Can you help us? We are always looking for support from volunteers to help on the night who enjoy meeting people, collect the food from local businesses or financial donations to help keep this event going.
