For it's third year in a row… are you performing or going to the Edinburgh Fringe and have leftover food you don't just want to throw away? Donate it to a food bank before you leave and give something back to the city that gives us so much.

I am working with the following Fringe Venues (Fringe Central has to remain impartial so I work directly with venues and journalists to get the word out) —

Laughing Horse
Monkey Barrell
Sweets Venue.
Gilded Balloon
The Underbelly
The Stand
Zoo Venues
C Venues
The Pleasance
(more tbc)

This year I'm working with three charities. Each of which can accept specific donations. They'll be three tables side by side at the Three Sisters on the day with signs, so don't worry! But here's a brief explanation…
