Social Innovation Spotlight:

Social Bite

Social Bite is an inspirational social enterprise on a mission to end homelessness in Scotland. They recently gave a moving talk at the Social Enterprise World Forum in
Edinburgh and we wanted to share their journey with you. Social Bite is on a mission to build a collaborative movement to end homelessness in Scotland.
They have social enterprise cafes throughout Scotland, employ homeless people in their stores, run a high end restaurant that feeds homeless people as well as diners, build villages for homeless people to get back on their feet and run a ‘pay it forward’ system where customers can buy food in advance for homeless people. In addition, they created the largest ever ‘sleep out’ to raise money and awareness for homelessness, which raised over £4million in just one night! 
Their motto: Good food for a good cause.
