Hearty Squirrel is a student and volunteer run food cooperative at the University of Edinburgh. We strive to provide healthy, local, ethical, organic and Fairtrade food to students and staff, as well as a unique and informative experience for our volunteers. Our goals also include promoting and educating the University public on food sustainability, running food workshops, and supporting other groups.
We have a dry foodstuffs stall in Potterrow on Mondays, 10am-3pm, and a local Veg Bag stall every Thursday, in fornt of George Square Library, 1pm-4pm.
We are completely run by volunteers, so we need YOU to get involved! Cooperatives are an alternative to supporting the profit-driven model of most major supermarkets, Hearty Squirrel is a great way to ensure you are supporting ethical suppliers and it is heaps of fun too!
