EATS Rosyth is relying on shoppers to help them raise vital funds.

The community project, which grows and shares food, and aims to reduce waste, help the environment and improve food education, has been chosen to benefit from the Co-Op Local Community Fund.

Every time a member buys Co-op own-brand products they get a 5 per cent reward for themselves, and a further 1 per cent goes to local causes like EATS Rosyth.

Co-op members can decide which local group they would like to back by going online at

Karen Dorrat, food project manager, said: “At a time when funds for charitable organisations are becoming more difficult to access, we’re incredibly grateful for this opportunity to make a real difference in Rosyth.

“We are raising funds to continue our food growing and sharing project, in particular the distribution of food parcels to those struggling as a result of Covid, such as those who are facing increased financial challenges, health issues or who are isolated and unable to access good healthy food. We are already building up a good partnership with Co-op member pioneers and recently they generously donated hundreds of reusable fabric bags for our parcels. We really hope that people will visit the website and choose to support us."
