Family Cafe by The Secret Kitchen Cafe
Family Café project is now CLOSED!
Secret Kitchen is still running social evenings and a new project called Super Kitchen is starting up, promoting social eating using surplus across Nottingham City...
Please take a look at our videos which show what fantastic things we did at Family Café, and thanks to everyone who made it such a successful pilot...
Tell me more...
This innovative project was the first of it's kind anywhere in the UK (as far as we were aware) that directly targeted children and families through a teatime club, used supermarket and locally-grown surplus. We are the alternative to food banks as we offered very affordable food and opportunities to volunteer in exchange for a meal. We offered a warm, welcoming, home made vegetarian dinner using fantastic surplus food. We also offered the chance to volunteer and cook for our community and we had guest spots by local teachers, youth workers, community support officers, parents and other community mentors so children could see that everyone cooks and eats together!
The Family Cafe was (and still is!) about encouraging people to share food and eat socially, to promote community, volunteering, conversation and food empowerment.
Affordable food, eaten socially, cooked with lots of love by The Secret Kitchen Cafe.
Our Family Café project is completed and here are some videos that tell you what we achieved! http://dmouse.wistia.com/medias/8bdi1qya0g
