£5 to buy Christmas dinner for a homeless person in Scotland and help fund The Social Bite Village to break the cycle of homelessness
About today's deal
Christmas is a time to spend enjoying a great meal in good company, and for the homeless it’s even more important to be able to enjoy the festivities when it can be all too easy to feel alone.
We’ve been absolutely blown away by your generosity over the last few days – you’ve helped make sure the incredible team at Social Bite can give Scotland’s homeless a hot meal and a place to go over Christmas, which makes a huge difference to those in need. While we’re all enjoying the next few days at home with our families, we’d love you to keep spreading the word and donating – with your help we can continue to feed the country’s most vulnerable people throughout 2017. Thank you truly for your incredible support.
With a donation of just £5, you can make sure a homeless person gets a hot meal and somewhere to go on Christmas day.
We’re also asking for your help to fund The Social Bite Village to break the cycle of homelessness. This ground-breaking project will see a mini village being built in Edinburgh to provide accommodation, counselling, education, support and a job to help get homeless people back on their feet. Your donations will help someone escape homelessness and change their life forever.

Good food, doing good
As the nights draw in and the colder months arrive, it’s more important than ever to remember those less fortunate and donating Christmas dinner to someone in need is a great way to do just that - with 100% of your £5 donation going directly to Social Bite. Donate a Christmas meal and you’ll not only provide a delicious helping of festive food, you’ll also give someone a warm and friendly place to spend Christmas at one of Social Bite’s cafes in Glasgow, Edinburgh or Aberdeen.
The Social Bite Village
Social Bite are embarking on their biggest project to date, and they need your help to make it happen. In order to end the cycle of homelessness, Social Bite are creating a mini-village with 10 purpose-built homes to give 20 homeless people a safe space and all the support they need to get their lives back on track. They’ll be given emotional and mental support, education and advice on money management, health and fitness, as well as being given a job. This is a solution which will allow Scotland’s most vulnerable to get back on their feet. Once someone is able to move into their own home, a new resident will take their place in The Social Bite Village to begin their journey.
Social Bite in your community
Social Bite sandwich shops can be found on Rose Street and Shandwick Place in Edinburgh, St Vincent Street and Bothwell Street in Glasgow and Union Street in Aberdeen. They’ve even got a brand new restaurant, Home, with Martin Wishart appearing regularly as a guest chef.
As well as producing fresh, competitively priced soups, sandwiches, gourmet pies, wraps, salads and more the team at Social Bite also feed over 150 homeless people every day.
Social Bite is a social business which means 100% of their profits are given to good causes. What's more, it's a cracking place to grab lunch.
Social Bite’s eateries don’t just feed the homeless, they also provide a chance for them to get back into employment. 1 in 4 of their staff are formerly homeless and getting back on their feet thanks to Social Bite.
