It was a great day in the cafe today. We had 42 customers and intercepted loads of food.
Here’s what was ordered to eat in or take home for later:
- 24 portions of spiced root vegetable soup
- 25 portions of battered cod with potato wedges
- 6 portions of humous salad
- 6 portions of vegetable pasta with cheese
- 12 portions of mixed fruit crumble
- 10 portions of baked apple
- 13 portions of banana sorbet
The intercepted food came from a local charity, who collect food from Costco, and from a foodbank. It included plenty of cereal, tins, over 16kg of strawberries and lots of bread buns. It’s always satisfying when we are able to divert food like this, to people who need it. One customer who came to the food boutique felt a bit embarrassed about taking the food that they needed. So I reminded them that the food should really be in a bin, and that they were helping to rescue it (from landfill) by taking it home!
£79.14 was given in monetary donations and various people helped out in the kitchen, and to clean up the cafe.
A big thank you to everyone who supported TRJFP @ All Hallows’ Cafe today! You helped us to #feed bellies not bins!
