So what have we found out? That people love to eat socially and affordably and that they want to get involved in social eating projects. Here are our figures:
Days open in May: 16
Adult meals: 357
Kids meals: 228
A total of 558 meals served (blimey!!) and a total of £667.62 donated.
Our expected food bill for the year is under £2000 so you can see that very easily we cover our core food cost. The other money donated in will be directed towards other costs such as rent and insurance, advertising and equipment. This looks to be a really robust model that is sustainable. We will continue to seek funding to cover staff costs but other than that, we have shown in one month what a great project can deliver, and we are only in phase one getting things started.
It works, it works, it works!
Thanks for coming to our/your project!
