Hearty Squirrel is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit food cooperative at the University of Edinburgh. They strive to provide local, organic and affordable food to students and staff, as well as a unique and informative experience for their volunteers.
They are completely run by volunteers, so they 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! But you are also very welcome to shop with them, regardless of volunteering ability.
Stalls happen are every Thursday in term time, starting 23 January 2020. Hearty Squirrel Food Cooperative are also in the basement of the Gordon Aikman Lecture Theatre from 11 to 17 January 2020.
