Subsidise local organic veg box schemes

Create a pilot scheme whereby a number of people from lower incomes are invited to join in a veg box scheme.

This would promote locally produced food, and reduce  carbon footprint of much of our food stuffs. It would also encourage growth of the local organic veg production.

 

Why the contribution is important

We mjust reduce our carbon footprint by 2030 to net zero.

Much of our carbon footprint within Edinburgh wil be coming via food sources.

This could be a way to promote fresh healthy food which is both organic, and local.

It would improve health and wellbeing.

It would allow families on low budgets to access fresh foods.
