Community North

Food for thought

PCHP Food for Thought Forum

Pilton Community Health Project’s base is at the heart of the North Edinburgh community. The Food for Thought Forum exists to bring together community food and growing initiatives, organisations, projects and individuals within the area of North West Edinburgh; and to support, promote, link and increase local community food activity.

Our Vision

We believe everyone in North West Edinburgh should have access to a tasty, enjoyable, nutritious diet.  We want food to be a central part of our thriving community, bringing people together to grow, bake, cook and eat.

We want to see our community skilled and empowered to grow and cook good quality food for their families, friends and neighbours, and to see more local employment opportunities created in the production, distribution and preparation of the food we eat.

Our members are working towards aspects of a shared vision through a local community food strategy. We believe that by working together we are stronger and better able to contribute to the flourishing of North West Edinburgh.

Our key aims

  • To share and pool our knowledge and resources around community food & health
  • To use our collective resources to further develop a thriving local food culture
  • To move towards an adaptable and resilient community by providing opportunities for local skills development
  • To work together towards improving diet, food access, nutrition and health in NW Edinburgh

Who can join?

Anyone involved or interested in community food or growing activity in North West Edinburgh.
