A warm meal among friends

Hosting Hope is a community project hosting free community meals in Scotland. Through these meals, we aim to help address the situation of food poverty and isolation in Scotland, while creating a safe space to build friendships and explore spirituality:


Come join us for a warm meal. All our food is sustainably and, where possible, locally sourced. And to top it off – it’s free!


Come join your friends and neighbours for a natter over warm food. Everyone is welcome – come meet old and new friends!


Explore with us what it means to live a more meaningful life, through our short stories about Christ – encourage your soul!

Our vision

To see a Scotland free from life-limiting hunger and full of life-giving faith
