“What does real food mean to me?”

In 2015, SFYN Scotland celebrated their launch by hosting an Eat-In on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, the purpose being to raise awareness of issues within our current food system. They asked the question, ‘what does real food mean to me?’

The Eat-In, aiming specifically to discuss what makes our food meaningful, invited passer-by’s to also join in the conversation on how to create a stronger bond with our food and where it is produced. Members all brought their own dishes to share with the others, leaving with fire in their bellies (not to mention a full belly) to make a change.
