Tackling food waste; promoting community spirit
Saving that tasty produce!
First, our volunteer team collects food from various suppliers around York who donate surplus food to yourcafe, rather than letting it go to waste. Businesses include Tesco, M&S, Co-op and Costcutter.
Next, our volunteer chefs get to work. Despite sometimes having an abundance of something pretty obscure, or perhaps not very much food that week, they always manage to rustle up something delicious.
Our lovely serving team offer a variety of meals, catering to a wide range of tastes and diets. There are always vegetarian and vegan options available, as well as a selection of desserts.
Once the cooking team have chosen food for the day’s meal, the remaining food is arranged in our food market so that customers can take it home to enjoy. Donations are given on a pay-as-you-feel basis.
