INITIATIVES -  in York and nationally:
We   are   a   weekly   café   that   serves   meals   sourced   from   surplus   food   destined   for   landfill.   The   café   provides a   place   for   the   community   to   come   together,   make   friends   and   tackle   the   issue   of   food   waste   on   a   local level.   It   is   run   completely   by   our   passionate   volunteers   and   works   on   a   pay-as-you-feel   basis.   In   the month   of   February   2018,   with   your   help,   we   saved   a   whopping   555kg   of   food   waste.   We   want   to   say   a   big Thank    You    to    everyone    who    made    it    possible    by    preparing,    collecting    food    and    attending    the    cafe. Together we’re tackling food waste!
Chill   in   the   Community   CIC   group   first   opened   its   doors   in   2017   in   the Acomb   area   of York.   Formerly   a   hair   & beauty   salon,   Chill   in   the   Community   CIC   is   a   unique   project;   an   informal   café   setting   where   customers   can   grab   a freshly   made   panini,   homemade   cake   or   locally   sourced   coffee   whilst   others   can,   in   the   very   same   building,   access   a free food bank, youth drop in, toddler groups, craft activities & various other community based schemes.
Powered   by   the   people   of   Tang   Hall,   Food   Circle   aims   to   create   a   better   food   system,   one   which   works   for   the   benefit   of all. We want to…. 1 . Empower the urban community. Access to ingredients, tools and knowledge. 2 . Support   and   invest   in   our   sustainable   farm   heroes.   Reduce   agricultural   waste   and   reinvest   in   better   farming practises. 3 . Encourage   people   to   VALUE   OUR   FOOD.   Take   time   to   buy,   prepare   and   enjoy.   To   value   the   ingredients   and preserve the seasons.
