Some comments from our partners
Dave Dickson

Local Farmer
“Working with WELFEHD has expanded my farming business and contributes to the sustainability of farming in West Lothian.  It has also enabled me to expand my farm shop with WELFEHD supplying me with a range of additional produce from Scotland and further a field.  Where I previously used Fyffes Distribution for fruit and veg I can now support a social enterprise and circulate more money within West Lothian”

“Food Co-ops provide a number of social and economical developments that benefit  both individuals and communities.  The enthusiastic volunteers involved in running them gain new transferable personal, social and employment skills and communities benefit by working together to improve their services leading to improved community cohesion and connectivity which research shows influences well-being”

Matt Devine

Howden St Andrews Primary School
“The partnership that we have established with WELFEHD has been invaluable for us in developing our work in relation to our Health and Wellbeing Accreditation - level 3.  We are the only school in Edinburgh and Lothian's to achieve this level and believe that our food co-op and a community development approach has played a significant role in this award.  Pupils, parents, carers and the wider community are now more confident about the benefits of eating a healthy balanced diet and have greater access to fruit and vegetables to support them in their efforts to achieve this”
