The Oxford Food Surplus Café aims to help redress the imbalance in our food system by reclaiming surplus food and transforming it into delicious healthy meals accessible to all. Using the pay as you feel system, customers are able to contribute either what they can afford or what they think the food, space and idea is worth. We want to create an inclusive space to encourage community engagement and reconnect people with the food they eat. Please come and be a part of the project! We ran a hugely successful pilot event for the Oxford Food Surplus Café on Saturday 25th April at East Oxford Community Centre. Around 500 people were served delicious meals made from food that would have otherwise been wasted. For more info and photos see this page.
After the success of our first event, we have decided to go and do it again – so we will be back at East Oxford Community Centre on Saturday 11th July from 12-4pm! Sign up here if you’d like to volunteer on the day.
We will also be having a post-cafe social at The Star pub on Rectory Road, from 6:30pm on Thursday 16th July, so hope to see some of you there.
If you can’t make it, don’t despair, email firstname.lastname@example.org – we’d love to hear from you and there are plenty of ways you can still get involved!
