All 125 will be offered the food to fight the cost of living crisis
A Scottish charity will provide a free meals to all its staff in a bid to battle the cost of living crisis.
Edinburgh-based Teens+ will give all 125 staff breakfast and lunch to help them get through the crunch.
Simon Pearce-Madge, head of Teens+ said that the initiative aimed to mitigate the impact of the crisis on staff and “to create a more supportive and inclusive workplace where everyone feels valued and appreciated”.
Teens+ is a service run by the Edinburgh-based charity Capella, which also runs children’s sleeping charity, Sleep Scotland.
Capella said the scheme will cost £15,600 a year and will continue as long as it’s needed.
Gail Burden, chief executive, said: "The social care and education sectors rely on incredible people, so looking after our staff is a top priority for us.
"Following the challenges brought on by Covid, we worked tirelessly to become a living wage-accredited employer last year.
“We know that many people are facing financial difficulties due to the ongoing cost-of-living crisis, so we wanted to do something practical to support our staff members."
The organisation also issued a £500 cost of living payment to all Capella staff in January.
