The cafe as it was has died but from the flames a new project has been born- Family Cafe. I wanted to do something positive and proactive about food poverty and food waste so I came up with the idea of a Family Cafe where supermarket waste is upcycled into a healthy, tasty vegetarian meal. The innovative feature of the Family Cafe is that there is no price list and instead we ask customers to make a donation or contribute some voluntary time in the kitchen. The cafe will be open as a weekday teatime space from 4.00pm to 5.30pm and be aimed at families or those that want to eat in a family atmosphere, but it will be open to anyone. It will run at The Old School Hall on Windmill Lane in Sneinton, Nottingham.
If you'd like to volunteer then please get in touch! We'll keep you posted about a launch date.
