The University of Edinburgh has become the first Scottish University to achieve the bronze Food for Life Catering Mark in recognition of the institution’s commitment to serving fresh, healthy meals.
The university has achieved the award for the 24,000 meals they provide per week to the 2,000 students in Pollock Halls. Edinburgh University joins Stirling Council, Highland Council and East Ayrshire Council in providing Food for Life accredited meals. More than 3.5 million Food for Life meals are served in Scotland every year.
The achievement is part of an innovative, city-wide Edinburgh Food for Life project. The University of Edinburgh has joined forces with City of Edinburgh Council and NHS Lothian to transform food culture across the capital. The project, which is supported by Soil Association Scotland’s Food for Life programme, aims to roll out the Catering Mark at a number of key locations.
