Serving up Happier Mealtimes

Serving up Happier Mealtimes

Healthy, tasty food is something of a passion for us here at Stripe so we’re very proud to have helped launch the Scottish Government’s ‘Happier Mealtimes’ campaign.

It’s all about championing the sourcing and eating of fresh, in-season food which is nutritious, tastes delicious and also has environmental benefits.

We kicked it off with a taste test of delicious samples at a pop-up food kitchen in Edinburgh’s Festival Square.

The four-week campaign offers advice on how to find and use fresh, in-season foods as well as easy to make, tasty recipes from some of Scotland’s leading chefs and food organisations.

The pop-up food kitchen is also on the road to spread the ‘Happier Mealtimes’ message across the country so keep your eyes peeled!

New Road Safety app for kids is out of this world

New Road Safety app for kids is out of this world

Stripe showed its gaming prowess this month as we helped to launch a brand new kids’ app called KLANG: The Road Home. Developed by Road Safety Scotland and the Scottish Government, the app’s aim is to get kids aged 8-11 to think about road safety.

Following the story of a stranded and homesick alien robot called Klang, intrepid explorers are challenged to help Klang navigate our busy roads to collect the missing parts of his spaceship.

Stripe launched the app at the National Museum of Scotland with the help of Minister for Transport and Islands Derek MacKay, along with Klang and 30 of Scotland’s finest Junior Road Safety Officers.

Although none of the Stripes have managed to get past the first level, the app got off to a flying start with over 9,000 downloads in the first 48 hours!
