The Trash Cafe is a social enterprise run by volunteers, who on a daily basis rescue food waste that is still fit for human consumption and they distribute this food to anyone and everyone.
Their goals are to educate people about food waste and fight the war on waste.
Everyone is welcome to use the service (they have cafes, a shop and hampers). Food in the shop and cafes are pay as you feel, meaning you decide the value of the food and service and pay in time, cash, skills or item donations.
Every day is different and food varies. Meat is frozen on or before its use by date so it will extend it’s life by at least 3 month depending on the type of meat (All meat comes in fresh not frozen).
Items past their best before date are about quality not about food safety. I.e the colour or taste may change by this date but is still safe to eat as long as it has been stored correctly.
Your donations help towards the everyday running costs of fuel, rent, electric and various other bills.
