Fruitful Abundance was formed to stop food waste so when we heard that there was a project in Leeds doing just that a few of us went to have a look at the Real Junk Food Project.
We were very inspired and we are sure you will be too.
Take a look at this Youtube video, where Adam Smith, the founder, explains what it's all about.
Elsie's Cafe is open at the Market Street Community Rooms on the corner of Exeter Place and Brunswick Place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 10.00 a.m. - 2.00 p.m. serving delicious snacks and meals made with edible food intercepted from going to food waste.
The 'Give and Take' boutique stall with the excess edible food that we have rescued but which is too much for us to use in the cafe is avaialble during cafe opening hours and on Saturday mornings between 10.00 a.m. and 12.00.
We also have pop-up, evening 'Binners', Afternoon Teas and we also provide event catering. It is run by volunteers, so if you have a few free hours to offer, pop in if you would like to join our team. To see what's going on, visit Elsie's Facebook page.
Exeter Place, Northampton.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10am to 2pm.
