PEP is now working with ‘Scran Academy’, ‘Prep Table’ and ‘Fresh Start’ to create a Strategic Development Plan for meal deliveries; to be rolled out across the city. Currently the Scottish Government are being kept up to date on the initiative.

Our colleagues at ‘EVOC’; who support, develop and promote the work of voluntary and community organisations across Edinburgh; and our community Transport colleagues at ‘SEAG’, ‘LCTS’, ‘HC’L and the ‘Dove Centre’, are also all looking to get on-board and help in the efforts to ensure that vulnerable people from across the city and from walks of life get the food and assistance they need to see through the Coronavirus crisis.   

This Wednesday seven PEP buses were out and about delivering meals across North Edinburgh. So far the initiative has delivered an amazing 2295 meals. Well done to everyone involved!

Remember to follow Government guidelines and only travel if absolutely necessary; to protect yourselves, each other and our hardworking friends in the NHS!

Stay safe.
