Social Bite food, coffee pop-up launched

Social Bite Food, part of Social Bite charity, has launched a new “foodie pop-up” for outdoor events and festivals.

The repurposed horse box has been given a makeover by Social Bite Food to offer as coffee cart, taken out on the road across Scotland, “delivering good food for a good cause”.

Customers will be able to purchase hot drinks, including Social Bite’s own Eteaket blend tea and Dear Green coffee, as well as brownies and sweet treats, paninis and toasties, and pastries.


The cart will be popping up at various locations over the summer months, including Sound Bites, an outdoor concert event with the Scottish Ensemble from 18th to 19th July at the Scottish Opera Production Studios in Glasgow.
