Social Bite is no stranger to mixing with the stars and holding sleepouts – but its latest venture takes its mission to end homelessness to the global stage with youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai.
The Scottish homelessness sandwich shop has previously been visited by George Clooney, Leonardo Di Caprio and royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and raised a reported £7.6m through Sleep in the Park events in their native country over the last couple of years.

Social Bite will team up with the Malala Fund as well as the UNICEF USA and the Institute of Global Homelessness to get 50,000 people sleeping out on the same night worldwide next December.
Activist Malala, 21, who has advocated for human rights and female education after surviving a Taliban assassination attempt in 2012, visited Social Bite’s restaurant Vesta in Edinburgh on Wednesday.
