The aim is to deliver good food for a good cause

Social Bite has launched a new foodie pop-up just in time for a summer of outdoor events and festivals.

The repurposed horse box has been given a makeover by Social Bite Food, Food, part of the Social Bite charity,  to become a coffee cart, taken out on the road across Scotland, delivering good food for a good cause.

Customers will be able to purchase a tipple or their favourite hot drinks, including Social Bite’s Eteaket blend tea and Dear Green coffee, as well as brownies and sweet treats, paninis and toasties, and pastries.

The cart will be popping up at various locations over the summer months, including Sound Bites, an outdoor concert event with the Scottish Ensemble from 18to 19July at the Scottish Opera Production Studios in Glasgow. It can also be hired out for festivals, weddings, parties, corporate and private events. 

As the commercial arm of Social Bite, one of Scotland’s leading homelessness charities, Social Bite Food exists to help sustain its enterprise model and support more people into jobs to help break the cycle of homelessness in Scotland.

One in three members of Social Bite staff have experienced homelessness as an extreme barrier to employment.

The coffee cart is the latest addition to Social Bite Food’s offering, which also includes its Boxes of Joy brownie delivery service, five social enterprise cafes in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen and an online food delivery and catering business.
