Message from East Lothian Foodbank

As we put plans in place to ensure that we can continue to get vital food out to where it is most needed we need your help please.

We may not be able to deliver food parcels across the county as normal so we’d like to set up more community larders which could be open for a few hours a week to give access to vital supplies.

To do this we need to identify buildings/organisations which will remain open during these uncertain times and be willing to host a larder.

We’re looking to set up in the following places: - Cockenzie/Port Seton - Dunbar - East Linton - Haddington - Musselburgh - North Berwick - Prestonpans - Tranent - Wallyford - Whitecraig

If you have somewhere, or know of somewhere, and are willing to discuss hosting a larder please email our Director, Candace on

Thank you!
