Brixton’s first food waste and surplus
Since 2011 we have been sharing food with strangers as a way of bringing people together
What are our aims?
Get people together
Share skills and learn new ones
Reduce food waste
What we did over
We transformed our cafe into a small food hub, giving a box of fresh fruit and veg for free to anyone in need in the week leading to lockdown. From the 26th March-July we were commissioned by Lambeth Council to run the North Lambeth Emergency food hub. Now we have adapted our cafe into a Community shop so people can drop in and pick up what they need.
You can see more on our Instagram, regularly updated.
How it Started
We think that sharing food with strangers is one of the nicest ways to spread happiness. And if the food has been saved from going to waste, it makes it even tastier.
