    Hi Im John, CEO of charity Scran Academy.

    I have had EVERY bit of earned income and work cancelled since covid19 announced, as has the charity I founded, Scran Academt. As well as that, we had to (sadly!) cancel supporting our young people face to face. This has been tough. But it was the right thing.

    Despite this, our charity staff and volunteers, working with others, responded in less than 24 hours and have now applied our catering and community experience into creating a supply chain where we are delivering a FREE, HEALTHY and SAFE meal everyday to people across North Edinburgh and Leith (initially). HOWEVER WE ARE NOW CITY WIDE DUE TO DESPERATE DEMAND AND PUBLIC SUPPORT. We hope to help, love and support those most vulnerable to follow advice, reduce stress and stay home. Please help us support the OAPs, frail, struggling families & those with health conditions all access one wee crucial lifeline at this stage. Our direct partners include Prep Table Scotland, YMCA Scotland, Edinburgh Academy, Fettes College, Pilton Equalities Project (PEP), Fet Lor Youth Club and Out of The Blue Leith. Over 70 local agencies have referred people to us, and over 1,500 people have eaten our food.

    We're delivering around 7,500 meals per week (over 400% our original plan thanks to YOUR help!). We want to be there throughout ALL of lockdown. Roughly £12 will feed 1 pensioner everyday for a week. The local community, MPs, MSPs, the NHS and others are supportive and we are taking stringent industry-level measures to maximise safety and hygiene.

    Be kind to each other. Act with love AND safety. Thank you. Team Scran and all our amazing partners x

      Hi, thought I would post an update! This has all continued to grow, mainly because Edinburgh has needed us, and DEMAND HAS BEEN (SADLY) OVERWHELMING. Our main groups have been frail/ elderly people, people isolated, struggling families with kids, those facing disabilities & increasingly those who are facing tough home lives or cant access hot meals. The politicians have said we are 'over the peak' however this is where the real struggles start for many. My team and I aint going anywhere, if youre able to help. John x
