Last year the management committee made the decision to employ a manager for the foodbank. It was felt that this was an important step in the future development of the foodbank.
In November 2020, Alison Roxburgh was appointed to the role of General Manager of Edinburgh North East foodbank.
Alison has many years experience of working in the third sector. She latterly worked for Edinburgh Women’s Aid as Operational Manager.
Alison is also an elder in South Leith Parish Church and has held this office for more than 30 years.
We would like to take the opportunity to welcome Alison to the post and wish her every success as she works to develop the work of the foodbank further.
