Tackling food waste; promoting community spirit

Get Involved

During this time of change and social distancing, we are not recruiting new volunteers to support the existing projects.  Our need is for fresh vision to direct the project as it adapts to the new normal.  The existing team of directors will be stepping down soon and we are looking for volunteers who would like to direct yourcafe beyond 2020.


Here at yourcafe we rely on our team of hardworking volunteers who help with everything from collecting food to cooking food and, most importantly tackling food waste in a variety of ways. If you would like to offer up your time to volunteer then please send us a message using the button below to say hello and let us know what kind of role you are interested in. 


Our work covers many different areas of expertise and we really don’t know everything which is why we love people offering up their skills. If you think you can help us by sharing your skills we would love to hear from you. 


yourcafe relies on food donations from a range of supermarkets, producers and restaurants across York who enable a tasty meal to be put together every week. If you would like to become a food donor then please let us know. We also do welcome financial donations for instance to help cover hire of the hall.

“It’s a great initiative not to mention incredibly satisfying to make use of all the waste food. I’ve met some great people; it’s been such a pleasure to be part of the local community in this way!”
