Check out our latest short film by Stories of Note where we throw a spotlight on our takeaway “pay as you feel” community café run by Real Junk Food Project Brighton. Local residents were really happy to see the café reopening and we can’t wait for next Spring when we’ll be opening the Community Café on a daily basis.
If you look closely you’ll even see Kemptown MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle tucking into a tasty lunch made from surplus food that would otherwise be destined for landfill.
It has been particularly fantastic to welcome back volunteer kitchen staff, as Covid restrictions relax, who have lost none of their enthusiasm and are chomping at the bit to show us what they can do once they have access to fit for purpose facilities!
This film also introduces the newest member of the Fitzherbert Community Hub Steering Committee, Harry Fairchild, who is a regular diner at the Community Café (more from Harry in a future video).
“Being part of the team has made me really happy. This place is not about the money, it’s about looking after people”.
Hear, hear Harry!
The Community Café will continue to open on Wednesday at lunchtimes 12.30 – 2 pm until the construction of the Fitzherbert Community Hub starts. Don’t forget we are also running an open-access food bank out of the parish hall every Sunday from 12.30 – 2.30 pm.
