Feed your family from within 50 Miles: is a very simple project to label and promote locally grown food. Many of us would like to eat locally grown and produced food but sometimes we just don’t have the time to shop around to find it and some food and drink labelling can be vague and time consuming to read.
This project is intended to clearly identify food grown or reared within fifty miles of Dunbar/East Linton, including products made with locally grown ingredients. Check out the local food supplier map here!

Food Waste and Worms Work:
A reminder that East Lothian Council is looking at reducing the frequency of rubbish pick up and a worm box really helps to reduce the volume of rubbish in your bin. We currently have 70 households using worms to reduce the amount of food waste going to landfill. For information regarding Worms Work please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
