Edinburgh is one of the wealthiest cites in one of the wealthiest states on earth. It is a disgrace that in 2019 families are struggling to put food on the table and Foodbanks are spreading across the country. Helping Hands cannot fix the system but we can create positive change in our communities.
Through Solidarity Not Charity!
Since our formation in 2014 Helping Hands have collected over 20 tonnes of food for foodbanks and community projects in Edinburgh.
On Saturday 7th December 2019 Helping Hands will be holding a Foodbank Collection at Easter Road Stadium in partnership with Hibernian Football Club.
Helping Hands have the infrastructure and partners in communities to get the food distributed to the front line.

Want to Volunteer with Helping Hands?
We will be promoting the Foodbank collection before Hibs home games on Saturday 23rd November and Saturday 30th November.

On Collection Day , 7th December, we need lots of volunteers. Details of times etc will be announced in due course.
Helping Hands are asking individuals to donate Food and their precious Time.
We also need to cover costs of 40,000 promotional cards, 1000 colour posters and other promotional and support costs. Does your business have a social conscience? Any sponsor will be well rewarded with our love and thanks.
