Social Bite

 

SOCIAL BITE

Social Bite was begun in 2012 as a Sandwich Shop in Rose Street, but owners Josh & Alice decided to operate as a Social Business giving away all profits to good causes. In the space of just six years, Social Bite has gone on to employ 70 people and operate a chain of five social enterprise sandwich shops across Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Aberdeen as well as a food catering and delivery service. Employing several people who have been homeless and through the shared experience of working together, they became aware of the complexity of issues facing people on our streets and the vulnerable situations in which they find themselves. Today, Social Bite Academy enables the employment of people affected by homelessness (32 in 2018) and also supports homeless people to volunteer (45 in 2018). The charity are extremely grateful to all the people who have supported and continue to support us, adding their voice and passion to the movement to end homelessness in Scotland.
