CENTRAL Kitchen has been a hive of industry since the beginning of August to meet an order of 7,000 extra sandwiches and 1,400 salad boxes for the Edinburgh International Book Festival.
In partnership with event catering specialist Sodexo, our sandwiches and salads are available for purchase in the Spiegeltent, Signing Tent and Bookshop Café.
As part of the agreement Sodexo has agreed to donate 50p from the sale of each sandwich and salad to go directly into the Social Bite Fund.
Charlotte Turner, our Head of Corporate Catering said the partnership was a great opportunity for Social Bite.
“Sodexo is hugely respected across the events and catering industry so it is a great honour for Social Bite to partner with them.
“It is their fifth year of catering for the Book Festival and it is our fifth year of operation which shows just how far we have come in such a short time, since opening our first sandwich shop in Rose Street.”
“Through our presence at the Book Festival we are showing not only the quality of our food but also highlighting our mission to tackle the root causes of homelessness to a wider audience.”
In fact our sandwiches are proving so popular that we have been asked to make more!
