In Edinburgh, restaurant helps local farmers and charities
Social Bite is a restaurant that takes the term ‘charitable spirit’ very seriously indeed. By using local supplies and donating its profits to charity, this restaurant has created a whole new business model.
It’s true that the message behind their tagline has a double meaning. On the one hand, all supplies are bought from local Scottish and British farmers to support the local economy, meaning quality ingredients guarantee its customers healthy meals and produce.
For a reasonable price, customers can buy fresh meals made on-site. The menu specifies the nutritional value of each dish, including calorie, sugar, salt and fat content.
On the other hand, all of the restaurant’s profits are donated to five different charities dedicated to helping the homeless, fighting against malnutrition, disaster-help in poor countries, providing small loans to local Scottish people as well as providing aid to Malawi.
The restaurant business is not intended to generate profit, but to contribute to the betterment of society through its charitable nature.
